The XCAT handheld detection system features one-step detection of narcotics, explosives, and gunshot residue. The XCAT uses dedicated sampling cards to presumptively detect either individual analytes or groups of related analytes. The XCAT detection cards utilize specially formulated optical detection inks and software to identify characteristics unique to each individual or group of chemically related analytes and displays either a red or green light signal to the user to indicate “detection” or “no detection”.

Satisfied clients include Law Enforcement and Criminal Investigation Agencies, Oil Refineries, Museums, IT Companies, Arenas, Universities, Correctional Facilities, Banks, Airports, Military Facilities, and Coroners.
