Drug addiction has reached epidemic levels across the globe with approximately 250 million drug users worldwide and narcotic traffic keeps increasing. Law enforcement agencies have to search for new and reliable tools of counteraction against narcotics distribution. Every year a new type of drug is developed: the range of wide-spread narcotics like methamphetamines, heroin and cocaine, has been supplemented with new MDMA (ecstasy) and designer drugs (synthetic cathinones).
Instant in-field analysis
Enhanced Spectrometry solutions are designed to meet the needs of law enforcement agencies and contribute to control of narcotics distribution. RaPort, a portable Raman handheld spectrometer, enables quick and precise identification of all major groups of drugs (except herbals) securing instant result and immediate reaction. The embedded spectral library of RaPort contains dozens of narcotics including methamphetamines, synthetic cathinones, other narcotics and their precursors.
Within a few seconds RaPort scans narcotic substances in form of liquids, powders, gels, tablets and capsules and instantly identifies their content without destroying the package and avoiding direct contact. Due to RaPort superb sensitivity the laser power of 12 mW is perfectly sufficient to rapidly acquire a high quality spectrum from a single piece of substance. Up to 6 hours of autonomous operation make the instrument highly recommended for in-field analysis.
Hidden narcotics: Analysis of residues
EnSpectr software supports the unique function of the Search match mode: continuously measuring substance, a specific drug. RaPort identifies pieces of substance at a concentration as low as 1%. Raman Microscope RamMics enables even more accurate identification of component concentration, and below 1%, with MixSplitter technology. The MixSplitter complex analyzes each mixture grain and numerically characterizes each mixture component.
