Portable Mass Spectrometer

Real-time threats. Real-time detection.

MX908 is a multi-mission handheld, portable mass spectrometer utilized by elite responders conducting chemical, explosive, priority drug and HazMat operations around the world.

High selectivity and sensitivity for priority threats
Immediate actionable answers
Proven use in harsh operational environments

MX908 Beacon

Area Monitoring Accessory

Joint chemical agent detector for continuous, remote area monitoring of aerosol and vapor chemical threats.

MX908 Beacon

Find it. Even at trace levels. MX908 detects compounds at trace levels with a high level of sensitivity and unparalleled selectivity, giving you actionable intelligence that other technologies can’t. The power of high-pressure mass spectrometry (HPMS) accurately discriminates priority threats from the broad range of interferents that lead to false alarms with other technologies.
