BioScreener™-rapid screening for biological weapons agents
(one of FFI's TASKit™ - Threat-Agent Screening Kits)
Rugged | Long Shelf-Life | Extreme Storage Conditions | Simple-to-Use | Reliable
Individual disposable presumptive tests that identify potential threat-agents, such as suspicious powders, within 45 seconds. Identify whether a substance is a probable bio-weapons agent or an innocuous powder. Collect the sample by simply dabbing the sample tip on the suspect material; analyze the sample by cracking the built-in ampoules and watching for the specified color change.
Finally, first responders have a quick and easy way to determine if a suspicious powder is a likely bio-weapons agent, or not.
BioScreener™can eliminate the threat posed by a suspicious powder in seconds. Instead of shutting down an area for hours, even days, pending the results of an analysis, first responders can identify a suspicious powder as a bio-agent on the spot.
TASKit-001-BX is a box of five complete BioScreener™ tests. Each test consists of two steps but bio-agents can be eliminated in the first step in about fifteen seconds, or, if the second step is necessary, in a total of about 45 seconds. BioScreener™ can tolerate extreme storage conditions, e.g. being stored in a first responder vehicle in the summertime, without degradation of the kit’s shelf-life.
