explosives detector / trace / IMS / security
The concept of access control for critical infrastructure is well understood. However, when such controls need to be applied to members of the public, then additional security measures are required.
For example, in airports and prisons, there is a requirement to screen the public to determine whether they have been in contact with explosives (airports) or narcotics (prisons). This is readily achieved by a trace detector, because these prohibited substances contaminate personal effects, even after washing.
The Bruker DE-tector flex is a trace detection system that fulfils the requirements of these two typical applications perfectly. By swabbing an individual’s property with a non-scratch, disposable swab and inserting it into DE-tector flex, traces of these two classes of substance can be identified automatically; and within a matter of seconds.
The Bruker DE-tector flex employs industry-standard IMS (Ion Mobility Spectrometry) technology, but unlike most other instruments, it uses a non-radioactive source. Together with a low consumables burden, our new HEPI source reduces your through life costs by minimising your compliance requirements.
