EGIS Explosives Detection Systems

The EGIS is deployed throughout European and USA airports to provide, along with X-ray equipment, screening of hand luggage, electronic devices and passengers. EGIS sensitivity to many explosives helps ensure maximum security at border crossings.

Product Detail
System Description

The EGIS Explosives Detection Systems, EGIS II and EGIS III, are highly sensitive devices developed to detect various types of commercial and military explosives, including dynamite, Semtex, C4, and TNT. EGIS Systems are designed to be used in conjunction with other techniques in order to provide a comprehensive program to screen for explosives.
How EGIS Works Simple One-Person, One-Button Operation

The EGIS System utilizes identical separation and detection technologies used in advanced forensic laboratories worldwide: gas chromatography combined with chemiluminescent detection, providing the EGIS with the ultimate in speed, accuracy and sensitivity without compromise. Gas chromatography is the most widely used scientific technique for the positive separation and identification of explosive compounds in a complex mixture. The sample material is heated into a gaseous form, added to a carrier gas and introduced into the separation column where the mixture is separated into its individual component compounds by precisely controlled temperature cycling. These components are pass to the chemiluminescent detector in the carrier gas. Unlike other detectors which respond to the thousands of non-nitro compounds in a sample, the chemiluminescent detector of the EGIS will only respond to nitro-based compounds of certain structures in the sample, making the EGIS more selective with less false positives. As all nitrogen-based high explosives contain nitro groups, the nitro-selective chemiluminescent detector of EGIS is ideal due to its unique selectively.
Sample Wipe Method The EGIS detection system utilizes specially designed sample wipes to obtain its sample. The EGIS operator rubs a sample wipe on the surfaces of objects, areas, vehicles, or people to collect any explosive residue present. The amount of sampling time varies from a few seconds to a few minutes depending on the size of the object, the security risk involved, and the amount of time that is available to conduct the sampling. When done, the operator immediately inserts the sample wipe into the sample inlet port on the EGIS, which automatically initiates an analysis cycle. Within 16
seconds or less, the analysis is complete, and EGIS displays either a Clear or Alarm message. If the Alarm message displays, one or more explosives have been detected. The type(s) of explosive(s) found will be displayed. If the Clear message displays, no explosives were detected. Portable Sampler

The portable sampler unit features patented high-speed chromatography developed specifically for explosives detection. This technology ensures accuracy for a full range of explosives, even at extremely low detection levels. The convenient hand-held sampling device can collect vapors from volatile compounds, such as nitroglycerin, TNT, and ICAO taggants, as well as trace particles from non-volatile explosives, such as RDX and PETN.

CT-1128 Portable GC-MS

Gas Chromatograph-Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer (GC-MS) analysis is routinely used in analytical laboratories worldwide. Frequently, it is used for quantitative determination and characterization of both known and unknown chemicals. However, most commercial GC-MS systems are large, non-portable, laboratory based units. In order to transport them, the user must also transport all the necessary support equipment such as a gas supply, a vacuum system etc. The CT-1128 is a light weight, ruggedized, field serviceable device and is available to Government organizations and private firms for environmental assessments, arms control and non-proliferation activities, as well as detecting and identifying hazardous substances released during an accident or terrorist attack. The CT-1128 provides a cost-effective, efficient means for analyzing, on-site, unknown chemicals in various emergency and non-emergency circumstances. The CT1128 weighs approximately 70 lbs and is only 15" L x 23" W x 15" H. It is completely contained in a single carrying case housing the entire system. With a range of 1.6 to 800 Atomic Mass Units (AMU) and a library of hundreds of known spectra, the CT-1128 is unmatched in its ability to allow First Responders, as well as others, to quickly, efficiently, and reliably assess the situation and take the proper precautions to protect everyone involved. This photo shows the CT-1128 installed in a mobile laboratory. The laptop allows the user to interface with a main laboratory, for analysis assistance.
