Get in fast. Get out faster.

M908™ is specifically engineered for your most time-critical missions. The first and only handheld tool utilizing high-pressure mass spectrometry™ (HPMS), M908 provides civilian, federal and military responders with expanded analysis capabilities for CBRNE identification and detection at the point of action. Weighing just 2.0 kg (4.4lbs), M908 boasts an intuitive interface designed for effortless operation in full protective gear. Alerts are provided within seconds delivering immediate intelligence on high priority threats and rapid clear down between measurements means less down time in the hot zone — getting you in fast, and out faster.

Expanding Capabilities

The unique proficiency of handheld high-pressure mass spectrometry™ (HPMS) expands the first responder tool kit adding deep chemical and precursor material identification and detection capabilities beyond traditional tools. The selectivity of mass spectrometry allows M908 to detect trace quantities of critical threats amongst the myriad of interferents that plague other less selective technologies.

Credible threat recognition
without interference

The selectivity of HPMS coupled with smart on-board analytics allows M908 to focus on detecting and identifying the most critical compounds and extreme hazards in liquid, solid and vapor form without the clutter of low-threat background chemicals and with extremely low false alarm rates.

Expect the unexpected

From chemical warfare agents (CWAs), toxic industrial chemicals (TICs), toxic industrial materials (TIMs), and precursors to the use of unconventional agents, today’s first responders must be prepared for the unexpected. A focused yet expandable threat list enables M908 to adapt with each mission and serve as a true proactive performance tool in the hot zone.
