Smiths Detection Trace Detection BIO-SEEQ PLUS

BIO-SEEQ PLUS

Hand Held PCR-based Biological Agent Detector

Bioterrorism and biological warfare pose physical threats to civilian populations. Detection systems used to identify these dangerous bacterial and viral pathogens must do so accurately and quickly in order to contain the threat and save lives. The BIO-SEEQ PLUS is the first portable, hand held thermocycler capable of detecting both bacterial and viral pathogens quickly and accurately using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technology. It is highly specific, capable of detecting 1 CFU in as little as 30 minutes.

Typical Applications:

  • Government Buildings
  • Financial Institutions
  • Corporate Headquarters
  • High Profile Buildings
  • Mass Transit Stations
  • Airports

Smiths Detection Trace Detection SASS 3100 Smart Air Sampler System

SASS 3100 Smart Air Sampler System

The SASS 3100 works with the TacBio system. If the TacBio detects an alarm, the SASS 3100 starts to collect a large air sample. Airborne particulates collect on a filter until they are extracted.

Typical Applications:

  • Government Buildings
  • Financial Institutions
  • Corporate Headquarters
  • High Profile Buildings
  • Mass Transit Stations
  • Airports

Smiths Detection Trace Detection SASS 3010 Particle Extractor

SASS 3010 Particle Extractor

The SASS 3010 Particle Extractor extracts particles from the SASS 3010's electret filter. It transfers the particles to a buffer solution to preserve any Bio Agents until they can be identified.

Typical Applications:

  • Government Buildings
  • Financial Institutions
  • Corporate Headquarters
  • High Profile Buildings
  • Mass Transit Stations
  • Airports

NIDS Nano Intelligent Detection System

NIDS is a multiplexed Handheld Assay with each test strip simultaneously testing for up to 5 bio agents from 100 micro liters of sample solution. NIDS uses unique nano-manipulation technology to orient all active antibodies for maximum sensitivity and to virtually eliminate “Hook Effect” which can cause false negative reading when testing very concentrated Bio-Agent samples.
