The Right Chemical Detection Equipment for Your Toolbox

Hazardous Material Response and CBRNE teams are faced with a variety of tasks at every scene. Whether they are detecting to warn or protect, determining limits of contamination, conducting sensitive site exploitation (SSE), or conducting and verifying decon, 908 Devices provides chemical identification tools for all of the tasks your team faces. Use ThreatID or ProtectIR to identify bulk chemical material, XplorIR to identify 5,600+ gases, and MX908 for trace identification.  We have you covered for any scenario your team faces.

Respond In Real Time

908 Devices builds point of need, chemical detectors for first responders that provide chemical identification in seconds to keep responders and the public safe. From common hazardous materials such as CO2, refrigerants, ammonia and other toxic industrial chemicals, to highly toxic chemical warfare and pharmaceutical-based agents.

Identification of Hazardous Materials in Any Phase

Hazardous materials come in many forms: solids, liquids, vapors/gases, and aerosols. Responders rely on our technology to identify these threats in the field, quickly and safely. Whether it’s a gas leak, white powder call, clandestine drug or homemade explosive (HME) laboratory, or a chemical warfare agent, first responders need to be able to identify the threat to keep themselves and the public safe. 908 Devices offers the most comprehensive suite of products for hazmat identification.
