Expecting the unexpected.

The risk associated with today’s chemical warfare and industrial hazards is more disseminated than ever – from chemical warfare agents (CWAs), toxic industrial chemicals (TICs), precursors and degradation products, to the growing concern over A-series CWAs, also known as fourth generation agents (FGAs) or Novichoks.  These expanding threats require first responders, CBRNE teams and HazMat response units to prepare for the unexpected.

Adapting to new threats in real-time.

MX908® lets responders quickly detect a broad range of gas and trace level vapor threat categories – from the common to the extremely rare. Ongoing updates with real-world data on new threats let users quickly adapt to new priority threats as they evolve.

Eliminate false alarms.

False alarms with ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) or flame photometry-based devices are entirely too common.  MX908’s high-pressure mass spectrometry™ (HPMS) gives military and civilian responders comparable sensitivity to existing technologies with higher fidelity identification to ensure responders are only alerted when a real threat is present.

Hunting for CWs.

CW Hunter Mode is an MX908 Mission Mode that detects and identifies many emerging threats, including rare chemical warfare agents (CWAs) and novel materials.  MX908 is the only field-deployable tool that can identify A-series CWAs, also known as FGAs or Novichoks, at trace levels.  It identifies vapor-phase CWAs in seconds, and distinguishes true agents from CWA simulants.  Real-time quantitation also shows responders how much agent is present.  Non-volatile threats can be identified in about 60 seconds.
