Portable Explosive Chemical Detection Device – IP 1227

Current detection techniques require large, and expensivepieces of equipment that are largely not portable. Additionally, chemicalcompound properties of the sample may be lost during the sample preparationprocess by being absorbed in the filtration process or deteriorate when exposedto the extraction solution. Researchers at FIU have discovered a cheaper, faster, andmore efficient way to test chemicals used in homemade explosives pre and postexplosion. The technology is amenable to the performance of multiple analysesfacilitating detection of different chemical on a single test. Multipleanalytes on the same PAD allow for different chemical detections. A singleanalyte may be tested several ways within the same PAD reducing the incidenceof false positives. The different colors and intensities of the reactions allowfor accurate interpretations of the testing results. Anne Laure Schmitt Olivier aschmitt@fiu.edu 305-348-5948
