MAB

The MAB is a rugged biological threats alerter designed to be easily deployed on the field. The MAB continuously analyzes particles in the atmosphere and searches for specific chemical signatures of bacteria, spores, virus, toxins containing sodium and potassium element. The MAB technology is elementary analysis on each particle and early warning on abnormal biological background evolution. An alarm is triggered when the concentration in the air of those suspect particles increases.
