TruDefender FTX Analyzer

TruDefender FTX Analyzer Product Image

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announced the Thermo Scientific TruDefender FTX analyzer, the company’s latest addition to its line of handheld FTIR chemical identification instruments. Designed for use by first responders, hazmat teams, bomb squads, military and law enforcement personnel worldwide, these analyzers feature a self-contained anvil sampling head that enables better sample control and variable pressure for enhanced safety.

The new anvil mechanism is designed for improved performance and operator safety, offering the following benefits:

  • Enables variable pressure to provide safer analysis of potentially pressure- or friction-sensitive materials
  • Contoured design without crevices or friction points is intended to ensure safer sampling and simplify decontamination
  • The anvil fully rotates for sample placement and decontamination, a key capability when operating with limited visibility and dexterity
  • Optional sampling accessory allows easy placement of prills and offers protection for volatile liquids

TruDefender FTX instruments are certified to MIL-STD-801G ruggedness standards and use the same field-proven algorithms and easy-to-use software as earlier TruDefender and FirstDefender Raman instruments. This minimizes training for organizations and field teams that are already familiar with the platform.

Chemical Weapons Simulated Scented Training Cards

Product From NEWDISASTERPREP, a Division of Mid Atlantic Industrial Supply

Chemical weapon arsenals remain a viable threat to military personnel and civilian populations, due to their potential deployment and use by hostile military forces and terrorists.

Many of the first and second generation, chemical weapons may be identified by their unique odor. For example, the chemical Lewisite smells like geraniums; Sulfur Mustard gas smells like garlic and Hydrogen Sulfide smells like sulfur or rotten eggs.  In most cases first responders will not have immediate access to PPE (personal protective equipment) or gas meters and will have to rely on training, experience and all of their human senses, especially their sense of smell to detect potential chemical threats. Each NDP Chemical Weapon ID training kit kit comes in a self contained “training briefcase” containing 8 8.5” x 5.5” fully scented training cards. The scent is activated by vigorously rubbing a finger across the printed side of each card. The scent lasts for a long time and may be activated for several uses.
