Hand-held solid and liquid chemical identifier

HazMatID Elite is a next-generation handheld unknown solid and liquid chemical identifier that performs an analysis in 1 minute or less.

Analysis is performed by placing a small amount of unknown substance onto the diamond ATR sensor and applying pressure with an integrated press for solid samples. The sample interface also includes an integrated well for the containment of liquid samples. A second, touch-to-sample, diamond ATR interface is available for rapid analysis of pooled liquids and surface films, and enables robotics applications.

The HazMatID Elite user interface contains a large display screen and keypad controls for effective operation in protective gear and intuitive software.  
Other features include:

  • Integrated pressure device for analysis of solid materials, plus direct touch-to-sample capability
  • Automated analysis of mixtures with priority alerting for explosives, CWA, TIC and narcotics
  • Long-range, embedded RF wireless transmission
