Handheld Trace Detector

Portable and universal 

Detection of wide range of chemical agents including home-made peroxide explosives with rapid simultaneous detection of positive and negative ions.

Non-radioactive ionization source;
Open database of substances with possibility of later extension;
Rapid switching between vapor and trace detection modes.

Handheld trace detector for explosives, narcotics and toxic chemicals. Bipolar ion mobility spectrometer Kerber-T is a perfect multi-mode threat detector. It can detect and identify tiny quantities of almost all kinds of explosives, most common drugs, toxic chemicals and chemical warfare agents.

The detector is non-radioactive, absolutely safe in operation and doesn't require high-priced expandable materials. Kerber-T is highly appreciated and widely used by special services all over the world.
