Portable narcotics and explosives detection kit

ICx Technologies : 10 June, 2009  (New Product)
Fido Verdict is the new spectroscopy instrument from ICx Technologies for law enforcement personnel to identify liquid threats, explosives and narcotics
ICx Technologies has announced a new product based on a breakthrough in the miniaturization of Raman-based spectroscopy instruments. The company has redefined the field-based-analysis of unknown materials with the introduction of Fido Verdict, a palm-size instrument for rapidly identifying suspicious liquids, solids and powdered materials.

Building on the Fido pedigree of highly sensitive detection systems, Verdict has been designed to help military and law enforcement officials identify explosives, dangerous liquids, narcotics and other threats commonly listed by agencies such as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Verdict uses well-established Raman spectroscopy technologies to identify suspicious materials in various forms, including substances in sealed containers. Verdict now enables accurate, field-based analysis at security screening checkpoints, and in support of forensic investigations, while minimizing the exposure of first-responders and other users to potentially dangerous chemicals.

"Verdict will help ICx maintain our position as a world leader in developing portable, laboratory-caliber detectors for explosives, chemicals, radiation, and other threats," said Colin Cumming, CEO of ICx Technologies. "By adding Verdict to our other detection products like the Fido XT explosives detector and Raider radiation source identifier, we have broadened the detection capabilities of our customers with another truly portable, field-ready precision analysis tool."

Verdict is a portable, easy-to-use and effective tool for use by armed forces combating IEDs, as well as for law enforcement as they fight illegal drugs.
