ALPHAPCE 850 is a high-sensitive and non-radioactive detector for trace amounts of explosives and narcotics with IMS technology.
Description Review


ALPHAPEC 850 is a highly sensitive trace detector, in a lightweight and portable configuration. Adopting the advanced ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) technology, it can accurately detect and identify trace amounts of military, commercial and homemade explosives threats, and common illegal and controlled narcotics.

The compact ALPHAPEC 850 features a non-radioactive IMS source, so there is no need to get licensing from national nuclear regulatory agencies. This allows the detector to be used without time-consuming radiation testing, and enables license-free transport from location to location.

The device is unique in working with single-use swabs for both manual and wand sampling. Designed for efficient trace-particle pick-up, these swabs reduce contamination risk and offer the most hygienic method for sampling.
