Differentiating chemicals

Is that liquid an acid or a base? Is that powder a household chemical or a controlled substance? Differentiating substances with similar appearances is crucial for addressing the threat safely. RedWave can accurately differentiate chemicals at operationally relevant concentrations. Our proprietary Threat Assist database provides detailed chemical information on the scene in seconds.
