From the widespread manufacture and trafficking of new and established street drugs to prescription medication diversion, including fentanyl and other opioids, illicit drugs continue to afflict society. First responders, law enforcement officials and border security need immediate analysis on a wide variety of materials with confidence for immediate action. Whether performing checkpoint screening, clandestine lab interdiction or sensitive site exploitation (SSE), new handheld technology that can identify drug substances and warn of potential explosive or chemical threats delivers an actionable advantage.View Resources See MX908 ID Fentanyl
The unique proficiency of handheld high-pressure mass spectrometry™ (HPMS) expands the first responder tool kit adding deep chemical, explosive priority drug and precursor material identification and detection capabilities beyond traditional tools. The selectivity of mass spectrometry allows MX908 to detect trace quantities of critical targets amongst the myriad of interferents that plague other less selective technologies.
