Itemiser® 3 Enhanced

The Itemiser® 3 Enhanced is a desktop detector that simultaneously analyzes positive and negative ions allowing for trace detection of explosives and narcotics. The Itemiser utilizes patented Ion Trap Mobility Spectrometry (ITMS®) technology. The ITMS technology incorporates a switching system that allows for millisecond alternating from positive to negative ion mode. Detection limits are in the picogram range. The Itemiser is fully portable and includes an on-board printer.
