Fast and Safe Illicit Drug Testing for Law Enforcement

There is no time to waste when handling unknown substances.  Police on the street need to know if they are working with fentanyl or baking soda before it's too late.

With a simple point and scan utilizing a handheld Raman analyzer, you'll receive clear, court-admissible results in seconds and know if a mystery substance contains illicit drugs, precursors, cutting agents or household products.
