US border control to use miniature chemical identification technology

Smiths Detection has been contracted by US Customs and Border Protection to supply it miniaturized technology for fast and comprehensive in-field analysis of unknown suspicious substances at borders and points of entry.

A leader in ruggedizing and downsizing laboratory technology, Smiths Detection makes a range of portable and handheld systems used to identify suspected illegal or threat materials including narcotics, explosives, Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) and Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs).

Latest product introductions have included HazMatID Elite, a Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FT-IR) which identifies material based on its light absorption, and ACE-ID, a Raman chemical identifier that uses a laser to identify solids and liquids through certain plastics and glass.

Bob Bohn, Vice President, US Sales, Smiths Detection, said: “Smiths Detection combines cutting-edge technology in an easy-to-handle package for use in the field and in challenging environments. Our technology allows government agencies like the Customs and Border Protection to make fast decisions helping to reduce exposure, time and costs when dealing with a suspected threat or illegal substances.”
