Ionscan 600

The IONSCAN 600 is a portable desktop system used to detect and identify trace amounts of explosives. It features a proprietary non-radioactive ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) source, which means licensing from national nuclear regulatory agencies is not required. Onboard diagnostics also assist operators with maintenance and offer troubleshooting for error resolution. Sampling is done manually with single-use swabs, or with an optional low-cost, redesigned wand.
