Explosive Detection

The Explosive Detection IMASS™ provides a crucial advance in rapid explosive detection for military, police, border and other first responders. The device is used to directly sample surfaces, solids and liquids using an integrated sponge. A number of test strips are then run simultaneously from the sample, giving visual results for military explosives and multiple homemade explosive components in 3 minutes. Its unique rugged design* means that the IMASS™ device is straightforward to run and to read, even while in full protective equipment.
