TraceX – Pocket Size Explosive Detector


TraceX is rugged, reliable, low-cost and easy to use explosive detection kit that can be used by every warfighter or law enforcement officer.

With a single swab, the TraceX explosives detection device detects all the major families of explosive materials and their precursors. Thanks to the TraceX’s simple color-change alert system, a single color indicates the presence of a particular family of explosive material. No longer does the user have to conduct serial tests, and then try to interpret the results. This brief video clip shows a TraceX explosives detection device detecting ammonium nitrate. Explosive detecting has never been easier.

The TraceX explosive detection device was developed by Morphix Technologies under contract from the US Department of Defense, so you know it’s tough. It is small enough to fit in a cargo pocket, lightweight and rugged. Each TraceX explosive detection device comes in its own disposable protective plastic case, so it will be ready to use when needed. No more broken ampoules from rough handling, as can happen with other explosive detectors. And, the innovative collection system protects the sample from user contamination, so you can have confidence in the result. As the name implies, TraceX is sensitive enough to be used for trace explosives detection. It detects bulk explosives too.
