Roadrunner

The RoadRunner is a handheld instrument capable of detecting explosive materials, narcotics and homemade explosives. It is a dual-mode detector capable to accept vapour samples and swab samples as well, which increases flexibility. With a weight of 3,5 kg, it is literally a "go anywhere" device.

Sampling

The device offers two sampling modes. Direct sampling or so called sniff-mode for vapours and indirect surface sampling of particles and droplets with swipes and subsequent desorption.

Technology

The RoadRunner detector operates on the principle of Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) with a non-radioactive ionization source and internal calibration procedures.

Features

The RoadRunner has been designed for detection of explosives and narcotics on surfaces and in air. The user is guided interactive step-by-step through the sampling process supported by information on a touch screen display. All final results are displayed by a traffic light. When a substance has been identified its name is displayed.

Applications

The RoadRunner is dedicated for safety and security applications. Customs, police and airport security benefit from the flexibility of a mobile and light weight device when setting up temporary check-points and doing spot control onsite.

Consumables and Maintenance

When it is necessary to replace consumables, this can be done without calling for the Manufacturer’s Service Engineer. Recalibration is not required through the life of the instrument. All these features add together to reduce cost of ownership.
