De­tec­tion of (bu­ried) ex­plo­si­ves, fo­ren­sic traces, and nar­co­tics are cri­ti­cal for en­su­ring ci­ti­zen safe­ty and fight­ing ter­ro­rism. Re­lia­ble de­tec­tion tech­no­lo­gy is nee­ded, both for crow­ded are­as like air­ports as well as for con­ta­mi­na­ted zo­nes. The chall­enge is en­ab­ling real-time de­cis­i­on ma­king to en­su­re so­cial se­cu­ri­ty while en­su­ring re­lia­bi­li­ty to uti­li­ze fo­ren­sic traces as ad­mis­si­ble evi­dence in court.


  • Iden­ti­fy nar­co­tics by fast and easy da­ta­ba­se matching.
  • Ana­ly­ze che­mi­cal com­po­si­ti­on of nar­co­tics.

(Bu­ried) ex­plo­si­ves:

  • De­tect and lo­ca­li­ze bu­ried ex­plo­si­ves.
  • Iden­ti­fy dif­fe­rent and ca­te­go­ri­ze ex­plo­si­ves ba­sed on che­mi­cal com­po­si­ti­ons.

Fo­ren­sic traces:

  • Ana­ly­ze re­si­dues of gun­pow­der, fire ac­ce­le­rants or hu­man VOC fin­ger­prints.
  • De­tect and quan­ti­fy re­si­dues of che­mi­cal war­fa­re agents.

Re­la­ted App Note

Cha­rac­te­riza­ti­on of cher­ry-type fla­vorings
In this ap­pli­ca­ti­on note, we will in­tro­du­ce the ca­pa­bi­li­ties of our new sen­sor sys­tem (Ha­Voc) for real-time ana­ly­sis of vo­la­ti­le or­ga­nic com­pounds (VOCs). This sys­tem is ba­sed on mass spec­tro­me­try and de­li­vers real-time re­sults of la­bo­ra­to­ry-gra­de qua­li­ty.

Loo­king for a La­bo­ra­to­ry So­lu­ti­on?

The Ha­Voc Sen­so­ry Sys­tem is de­si­gned to re­vo­lu­tio­ni­ze in­dus­tri­al ana­ly­ses. If you are ra­ther loo­king for a la­bo­ra­to­ry so­lu­ti­on than an in­dus­tri­al one, dis­co­ver our lab ap­pli­ca­ti­ons ba­sed on the SICRIT® io­niza­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy!
