Mira DS – New handheld material identification system makes the job of first responders safer and easier

Jun 06 2018 Read 306 Times

Metrohm is pleased to present Mira DS, a new handheld material identification system for police, hazmat teams, bomb technicians, and military personnel. At the push of a button, Mira DS identifies illicit substances and explosives.

Mira DS was developed in close cooperation with professional first responders. While providing ease of use and speed, Mira DS addresses the need for safety of drug task force officers, hazmat teams, and bomb technicians in particular. Mira DS features a whole array of dedicated sampling attachments for illicit material identification. Drug Taskforce officers, e.g., may identify substances in glass bottles or plastic containers, even from a distance using the Stand-off Attachment, or with no concern of proper focus using the Contact Ball Probe Attachment.

Mira DS provides powerful mixture matching and its ruggedized design complies with MIL SPEC 810G. For important decision making in critical situations, first responders can interface Mira DS with the HAZMASTERG3 Software App to get additional, vital information about the substance they are facing.

To increase the sensitivity of Mira DS, it is compatible with Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) substrates. This technology enables the detection illicit drugs even when they are present in trace quantities. SERS substrates kits are available directly through Metrohm.
