Explosives Detection & Identification
Field Forensics is a premier developer and manufacturer of explosives and narcotics detection and identification kits and instruments.
Hand-held Raman Spectroscopy
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
- 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.
