MS Tech Detects Emerging Homemade Explosives, Fentanyl and a Range of Synthetic Opioids

MS Tech Ltd., a global developer, manufacturer, and innovator of nanotechnology, IoT and big-data sensors, has announced that its homeland security and defence division has expanded its detection capabilities covering chlorates, perchlorates, fentanyl and a range of synthetic opioids to meet with current growing threats around the world. The latest capabilities enable defence forces, HLS agencies and first responders to detect and identify dangerous chemical threats within seconds.

Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic drug similar to morphine and heroin, yet much more potent. Any inhalation or direct contact exposure can be deadly, and law enforcement and first responders are at high risk of being unknowingly exposed to such drugs in its many forms. Additionally, chlorates and perchlorates are very powerful oxidisers and have been used in homemade explosives in past terror attacks.

MS Tech’s flagship products are EXPLOSCAN, DUOSCAN and LIQUISCAN. The EXPLOSCAN and DUOSCAN are explosive and narcotic trace and vapour detectors, and the LIQUISCAN is a liquid explosives detector that use innovative High-Frequency Quartz Crystal Microbalance (HF-QCM) nanotechnology sensors developed, manufactured and patented by MS Tech Ltd. The products feature an innovative design with self-calibrating and self-cleaning capabilities, with the highest levels of operational availability. The HF-QCM nanotechnology sensors are non-radioactive, providing a completely green and safe working environment.

The EXPLOSCAN, DUOSCAN and LIQUISCAN are ideal for aviation and transportation security, high-threat facilities and infrastructures, military, customs and border control, mail inspection and cargo screening markets. The systems are operationally proven in a wide spectrum of temperatures and withstand even the harshest environmental conditions, including dust and humidity.
