Product Feature: Threat ID FTIR (Analysis of Solids, Liquids, Powders & Gases
ThreatID is the state-of-the-art chemical identifier, designed with input from first responders from all over the world. The superior performance, ergonomics, and usability of ThreatID supports higher confidence in identification of unknowns and quicker decision-making.
Any substance in contact with the diamond surface is interrogated by IR energy and a spectrum is acquired that is a characteristic pattern of the substance. In seconds, this IR “fingerprint” is automatically compared with libraries of digital reference spectra – Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs), Narcotics (including Fentanyl),
Explosives, Pesticides, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Chemical Warfare Agents, and common household chemicals.
ThreatID comes standard with more than 23,000 reference spectra of pure substances and common mixtures including WMD’s (w/ Novichok agents), explosives and drugs including fentanyl & fentanyl derivatives. All library spectra are matched to RedWave’s proprietary onboard chemical information database, ThreatAssist.
Web-based chemical informational databases such as NIOSH, PubChem and WISER are automatically searched with push-button links for all library files as well. The ThreatAssist onboard database provides additional information on any library entry such as chemical name, synonyms, common use, hazards and PPE as well as many more chemical-specific properties.
With the click of a button, all information about the sample and spectrometer, including spectra, library hits, data manipulation, system health and date/time of sample acquisition can be sent via email, directly from the spectrometer.
