We are excited to announce that the Bomb Disposal Unit of the Hungarian National Police has purchased two MX908 trace chemical detection devices to support first responder training teams across Central Europe.

The Central European CBRN-E Training Center (CE CBRN-E TC) located in Budapest, Hungary aims to set up comprehensive strategies for the prevention, preparedness, and response to CBRN-E incidents.  Partnering with response teams across Hungary, Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Slovakia and Slovenia, the CE CBRN-E TC is the hub for harmonizing best practices and training activities between participating countries in order to enhance national and regional CBRN-E capabilities.

“The collaborative environment at training centers like the CE CBRN-E TC are key to making sure response teams are better prepared to address the evolving threat landscape,” says John Kenneweg, VP and General Manager at 908 Devices.  “We are thrilled that they have recognized MX908 as a key part of their trace detection training program and look forward to supporting them further in the future.”

MX908 has been deployed for use by elite responders conducting trace chemical, explosive, priority drug and HazMat operations around the world.
