Smiths Detection engages 20/20 BioResponse to take on the global distribution services for powder screening test kits for military personnel to be able to detect the presence of biological agents within sampled powders
Smiths Detection announces a world-wide distribution agreement with 20/20 BioResponse for its BioCheck powder screening test kits. The partnership adds a low-cost, highly-effective biological threat assessment tool to strengthen Smiths Detection’s portfolio of proven emergency and first response solutions.


Mal Maginnis, President, Global Military and Emergency Responders for Smiths Detection, said: “This partnership reinforces our goal of becoming a total solutions provider for biological threat assessment. BioCheck complements our line of suspicious powders assessment technologies giving emergency responders a comprehensive suite to choose from for quick, efficient and accurate detection in suspicious powder incidents.”

Emergency responder teams and government agencies worldwide have used the sensitive kits for more than seven years.

Jonathan Cohen, President & CEO of 20/20 BioResponse, a division of 20/20 GeneSystems Inc., said: “Smiths Detection is an ideal partner with a well-established global customer base that will greatly benefit from the capabilities that BioCheck offers. Their full breadth of complementary technologies provides a comprehensive solution, and we look forward to a meaningful and long-term relationship with them.”
