DABIT™ – easy to use color tests for narcotics identification

Dab or rub the suspect material or residue. Drop back into its tube and squeeze the tube. A color match indicates a positive. It couldn’t be simpler. The officer-friendly DABIT™ can even be used on residue that would otherwise be almost impossible to collect if using another type of presumptive test kit – the user doesn’t have to worry about gusts of wind either – DABIT™ holds the sample firmly in place until it can be tested. DABIT™ tests use chemicals (reagents) that comply with The National Institute of Justice, Standard—0605.00, Color Test Reagents/Kits for Preliminary Identification of Drugs of Abuse, developed by the Law Enforcement Standards Laboratory of the National Bureau of Standards.

E.L.I.T.E. Model EL-100

Simple, Rugged & Reliable Explosives Detection

E.L.I.T.E.™ explosives detection kits are some of the most convenient test kits on the market. Each one is self contained and has a long shelf-life.  Users carry them in shirt pockets.   Though small, the kits each detect a broad range of commercial, military, and home-made explosives. They can detect at trace levels down to single nano gram amounts.     E.L.I.T.E.™ test kits are used by elite military, police, and security services worldwide.
  • E.L.I.T.E.™ colorimetric chemistry is unique, giving the user easily discernible colors and false-positive rates lower than other currently available test kits, instruments and even K-9s. There are no known false-negatives.
  • E.L.I.T.E.™ kits apply to a broad range of applications including checkpoint screening of people, vehicles and baggage, security spot-checks, forensic intelligence gathering and post-blast investigations.
  • E.L.I.T.E.™  doesn’t require an instrument to read the result since a color change indicates a positive test.  The color chart is only for reference. A digital camera records the result, the kit serial number, date, time, GPS location and other information.
  • E.L.I.T.E.™ tests for peroxide, perchlorate and chlorate in liquid, vapor or solid form.  It even detects peroxide-based explosives such as TATP when the TATP is stored or hidden under alcohol.
