Fentanyl has become the single greatest threat to Law Enforcement
The opioid crisis has become one of the greatest challenges facing our nation. Fentanyl and Fentanyl derivatives are common in the drug market because of their incredible potency. This potency is what makes them a threat to users and those who seek to protect them – First Responders.
At street level, fentanyl and fentanyl derivatives are difficult to quickly detect and identify with confidence. Existing technology has too many false positives or are not sensitive enough.
In bulk amounts, most analyzers become saturated and fail. The ThreatID is the first FTIR-based tool capable of identifying fentanyl and fentanyl derivatives from trace to bulk. Identify controlled substances manufactured in illicit laboratories, tackle counterterrorism, and accurately identify narcotics smuggled across our borders.
