EOD 10 Bomb Suit
NIJ Certification for Bomb Suits What is it, and why does it matter?
Dr. Aris Makris, Ph.D., Vice-President, RD&E and CTO, Med-Eng & Dr. Jean-Philippe Dionne, Med-Eng
Jan-Feb 2019, Detonator Magazine.
Historically, bomb suit manufacturers relied on multiple performance standards, or test protocols, inspired from adjacent technical fields and adapted to the EOD context, in order to quantify, or characterize, the performance of their bomb suit design […]
Developments in Bomb Suits Testing and Standardization
Dr. Aris MAKRIS, Ph.D. Vice-President, RD&E and Chief Technology Officer, Med-Eng, Canada
Slovakia 2018, NATO EOD Bomb Suit Testing and Standards.
Historically, bomb suit manufacturers relied on a number of performance standards inspired from adjacent technical fields, sometimes customized for EOD applications. Test methods were inconsistent between laboratories and many results could not be consistently reproduced, or trusted […]
What is Hybrid Decon? A guide to the latest in decontamination technology.
First Line Technology
Threats have evolved. Decon hasn’t. Until now.
Traditional soap-and-water decon lines were used in World War I. Today many Hazmat teams are still using those same tools, techniques, and practices. why? […]
Comparison of FT-IR and Raman Spectroscopy: Identification of common chemicals in safety and security applications
Dr. Suzanne Schreyer, Sr. Applications Scientist Rigaku Analytical Devices
Correct and timely identification of chemicals and chemical compounds are required to ensure safety. In this work, a comparison of two proven techniques is performed on a set of chemicals considered “materials of interest” in safety […]
Rapid Concentration to Support Improved Detection of Indicator Bacteria in Recreational Waters
Andy Page President and Chief Technology Officer, InnovaPrep

The True Cost of Decontamination
Chris Hodge, Developer of Dahlgren Decon
The traditional way to compare the value of decontamination solutions was to compare the cost per gallon for their acquisition. But all decontamination solutions are not created equal and cost per gallon can be misleading. […]
