Developed by the manufacturer Greyscan, and marketed exclusively in France by HTDS, the new GreyScan ETD-100 mobile detector is a new generation of high-sensitivity explosive trace detector.
"A true revolution in the market, the GreyScan ETD-100 detector is the only mobile platform in the world using forensic-grade capillary area electrophoresis (CZE) for the detection of inorganic explosives (HME) with unparalleled capability," htdssays.
Made from inorganic salts (fertilizers and other compounds, nitrates, chlorates and perchlorates), and difficult to detect, HME(Home Made Explosives)account for more than 85% of terrorist explosions in the world.
Having benefited from more than five years of R&D for its development, the new GreyScan ETD-100 detector provides, according to HTDS, for the first time, an effective response to the lack of a real solution for detecting MCH explosives.
Fast, accurate, portable and easy to use, the ETD-100 has been designed to meet all security checkpoint scenarios. Versatile and ultra-sensitive, the ETD-100 detects a wide range of explosives and their compositions.
Complementary to traditional explosive trace detectors, the GreyScan ETD-100 detector thus strengthens the detection capabilities available on the market, and in particular explosive trace detection solutions by ion mobility spectrometry (IMS).
The deployment of the ETD-100 will therefore increase the likelihood of detection of homemade explosives and IEDs that constitute the predominant threat used in terrorist activities.
This new explosive trace detection solution is suitable for both mobile and stationary detection applications. The GreyScan ETD-100 detector is equipped to meet the needs of:
- forensic laboratories,
- of the army
- of critical infrastructure
- passenger / customer screening
- major events or mass gatherings
Advanced features in the service of the fight against terrorism
A mobile, robust system adapted to multiple areas of operation, the new GreyScan ETD-100 detector is rapidly installed and brings a considerable step forward in the fight against terrorism.
Indeed, and with only a preheating time of 10 minutes, the GreyScan ETD-100 detector offers important practical advantages:
> Faster results
Analytical results in less than a minute (about 40 seconds), which is an extreme speed compared to the slowness of equivalent equipment in the laboratory.
Accurate and sensitive detection of a full range of explosive compositions with minimal downtime between operations.
> Easy to use
Intuitive use thanks to a touch screen with red/green screen and audible alarms. Only minimal training is required for security personnel and non-expert users.
Finally, among the many advantages of the GreyScan ETD-100 detector, we can also display:
- battery / mains operation
- low cost of consumables
- a high sample flow rate
- protection against overloading residual contamination
- a selective and very low rate of false alarms
