Drug detection for French agency

IDenta : 17 June, 2008  (Application Story)
IDenta is supplying France with detection equipment of the discovery of drugs and narcotic agents
IDenta has announced the company, through its representatives in France, IBTEC, will be signing an exclusive agreement to develop its new precursor products for MNCPC-Mission Nationale De Controle Des Precurseurs Chimiques. The announcement follows last week's presentation to The International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) of the United Nations concerning the crisis problem of drug manufacturing in Afghanistan.

"As far as we know, IDenta is the only company in the world that is developing products to address this huge need for precursor detectors," said IDTA CEO Yaacov Shoham. "In this industry all of the other companies have simply produced the same exact products year after year. IDenta is the only company that has maintained ongoing new product R&D which is the reason we are now at the forefront of the drug, precursor and explosive detection industry."

IDenta's new detector for acetic anhydride, the precursor for heroin, was very well received last Thursday at the Paris meeting of INCB and from that meeting, IBTEC, located in Villeurbanne, France, the company's French representatives, will be signing an exclusive agreement with the French agency, MNCPC. The new agreement will generate an immediate order for the new precursor detector, and includes research and development funding for IDenta to develop additional products for detecting precursors used to develop other drugs such as cocaine and methamphetamines. The new contacts from governments around the world, made during the UN conference, also open the door for greatly expanding the awareness of IDenta's other drug and explosive detection products.

IDenta's new precursor test devices are similar to those that the company is currently using to produce its drug and explosive detectors. They have a hard plastic casing that includes vials of chemical detectors and will be very easy and safe to use. As with all of IDenta's other products, they will be able to detect precursor chemicals immediately and positively from the field without further laboratory confirmation.

The international market for IDenta's precursors detectors will be primarily law enforcement agencies dealing with border patrols and customs, and by the special agencies in governments charged with the responsibility to find and detect precursors used to make illicit drugs. It is estimated the market for drug precursor products could potentially exceed millions of units per year.
Bulk pricing of IDenta's new precursor products has not been determined, but single units are expected to retail for approximately $5.00 US dollars. The company is currently accepting advance orders for its precursor products and inquiries for the development of additional chemical detectors.
