HandyRam™ is the latest in Raman technology that allows confident identification of narcotics in seconds using laser-based analysis. HandyRam™ fits in your pocket, runs from two AA batteries, is IP67 – complies with MILSTD 810G. HandyRam™ is the first true pocket-sized Raman Spectrometer that can identify thousands of compounds. Various libraries are available from Field Forensics yet the user can develop libraries with the included software package.
Dab or rub the suspect material or residue. Drop back into its tube and squeeze the tube. A color match indicates a positive. It couldn’t be simpler. The officer-friendly DABIT™ can even be used on residue that would otherwise be almost impossible to collect if using another type of presumptive test kit – the user doesn’t have to worry about gusts of wind either – DABIT™ holds the sample firmly in place until it can be tested. DABIT™ tests use chemicals (reagents) that comply with The National Institute of Justice, Standard—0605.00, Color Test Reagents/Kits for Preliminary Identification of Drugs of Abuse, developed by the Law Enforcement Standards Laboratory of the National Bureau of Standards.
Fast, Easy TLC Analysis for Field and Laboratory
Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) is ideal for rapid presumptive identification, which when used in conjunction with color tests or other field analytical methods gives the end user a lot more information about the explosive compound(s) in question.. TLC is inexpensive, practical and gives valuable chemical information including identification of compounds in a mixture and establishing the purity of a substance – forensics labs routinely use TLC for these reasons. Winner of the R&D100 Award it tests forensic samples to identify explosives, illicit drugs, insecticides on surfaces, liquids and solids with greater power than other presumptive analyses and it works in a complementary way to color tests.
