Alliance for hand held chemical threat detection

Smiths Detection : 14 August, 2008  (Company News)
Partnership puts lightweight threat detection capabilities into the hands of law enforcement and emergency services personnel
Smiths Detection has announced a partnership with Torion Technologies. The alliance enables the joint development of a next-generation, hand-portable GC-TMS system for the security, defence, and civil emergency services markets.

The use of Torion’s proprietary toroidal technology (developed for its GUARDION-7) allows a well-established analytical technology, GC-MS (gas chromatography mass spectroscopy), to be used in a lighter and faster way than ever before. The unique size and weight of the new instrument do not compromise its ability to achieve the same high accuracy, sensitivity and selectivity of standard GC-MS technology.

This technology is designed to identify a variety of substances such as Chemical Warfare Agents (CWAs), Volatile and Semi Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs & SVOCs) in air and liquid samples.

Mal Maginnis, President, Smiths Detection Global Military & Emergency Responders, said: “This partnership will enable Smiths Detection and Torion to leverage each company’s core strengths, resulting in a highly portable, durable and reliable system. It supports our most important objective which is to supply military and civil emergency responders worldwide with advanced detection and identification solutions.”

The new system fills the gap for field applications where trace analysis of complex mixtures is required. Douglas Later, President, Torion Technologies, said: “We believe the Torion/Smiths Detection partnership makes sense on multiple levels as it will result in a market-leading instrument that will be critical in combating chemical threats around the world. The combination of Torion’s innovative technology and Smiths Detection’s engineering expertise, strong brand recognition and market knowledge creates an ideal partnership.”

Smiths Detection will be exhibiting at FRI 2008 in Denver, August 14-16 at booth 1121.

The GC-TMS system will further enhance the range of Smiths Detection’s portable and handheld emergency response solutions which include: HazMatID, HazMatID Ranger, GasID, RespondeR RCI, SABRE4000, SABRE-FR, LCD-FR and the HGVI.
