The AP4C handheld chemical detector is a fast, easy to use and inexpensive to operate detector with very little maintenance required and no maintenance, calibration or testing required by the end user.
The AP4C technology allows the simultaneous detection of an unlimited number of gases and the identification of the chemical elements that constitute these chemicals. It can detect all nerve, blood, blister agents as well as many TICs and TIMs and precursors in form of gas, vapor and liquid.
It is therefore possible to detect impure agents or chemicals manufactured by terrorists that would not fit into traditional libraries of other detectors.
Moreover, the AP4C will detect new agents that will be developed in the future without needing an upgrade.
