Create a safer prison environment

Precise and accurate detection and confiscation of contraband in prisons can prevent drug abuse, violence and further criminal acts.

The prevalence of Spice is exacerbating an already under-staffed and straining system and it has been difficult or even impossible to detect– until now! Our team has been developing detection algorithms to focus on the key chemical compounds found in the vast majority of Spice substances.

Check out our White Paper for a fascinating insight into this insidious drug, its manufacture, distribution, effects on prisoners and how and where it can be detected.

Fentanyl – a lethal narcotic

The number of drug overdoses in prisons has risen dramatically in recent years and this is largely due to the fentanyl epidemic plaguing many parts of the world. This synthetic opioid is difficult to detect when concealed and poses a danger to not only prisoners who ingest or inject it, but also staff who unknowingly come into contact with contraband drugs.
