The One and Only, Portable Handheld Trace Detector for Explosives and Narcotics with Technology of High Frequency Quartz Crystal Microbalance (HF-QCM)

The Inspection capabilities of homeland security operations can be significantly upgraded by utilizing the non-radioactive and proven HF-QCM detection method. HF-QCM offers a complementary or alternative detection method to traditional analytical chemistry instruments currently used in many homeland security inspection activities by providing important operational advantages in sensitivity, selectivity, durability and reliable field operations.

The New method utilizes a chemical sensor process called "High-Frequency Quartz Crystal Microbalance," or HF-QCM. The main advantage of HF-QCM as a detection method is the ability to determine the precense or absence of contaminants and related chemicals within seconds, even in field operations. The HF-QCM detection method also provides real-time analysis, quick recovery and exceptionally high sensitivity to a wide upgradeable database of materials and their detection algorithms.

The application of HF-QCM requires minimal maintenance and training, which can result in operational cost saving compared to existing HPLC, GC-MS and IMS based instruments. The application of the HF-QCM detection methods can assist wide range of homeland security activities and government agencies in strengthening surveillance and enforcement efforts.
