MX908 leverages high-pressure mass spectrometry (HPMS) to deliver trace detection with dramatically enhanced sensitivity and broader threat category coverage. The detector offers unmatched flexibility and trace detection power for elite responders in chemical, explosive, drug and priority hazmat scenarios.
With the enhanced proficiency of HPMS, users can lighten the technology load of tools required downrange. With sensitivity levels comparable to ion mobility mass spectrometry (IMS) and significantly enhanced selectivity, MX908 can detect trace quantities (low - mid ppb) of priority threats amongst the myriad of interference that plague other less selective technologies.
Rugged Mass spec for Trace Detection
The MX908 performs trace-level threat detection, with high sensitivity and selectivity. It is able to analyze all phases of matter with results in less than 60 seconds, and is a rugged, easy to use device. With the enhanced proficiency of HPMS, users can lighten the technology load of tools required downrange. With sensitivity levels comparable to ion mobility mass spectrometry (IMS) and significantly enhanced selectivity, MX908 can detect trace quantities (low - mid ppb) of priority threats amongst the myriad of interferents that plague other less selective technologies
As the threat landscape continues to evolve, responders must adapt to ensure they’re equipped to address threats as they arise. Whether identifying military grade warfare agent, mitigating an active incident, or validating decontamination, responders need the selectivity to distinguish between threats and the sensitivity for high fidelity trace detection. With MX908, elite federal, military and civilian responders have the quick, confident intelligence they need to ensure the safety of their team and the public

Using the Explosives Hunter mode, the MX908 can detect a range of explosives in the vapor and solid/liquid phases, including military grade, commercial grade and homemade explosives, as well as key precursors.
Using Drug Hunter mode, the MX908 can identify a range of drugs of abuse down to trace level, in particular, fentanyl and its analogs.
Using the CWA Hunter mode, MX908 can detect and identify traditional priority chemical warfare agents and emerging threats. These include fourth generation agents, also known as Novichoks or A-series agents as well as GA, GB, VX, VE and a range of other agents.
