The global drug problem is increasing, with trafficking of meth, cocaine, ecstasy, heroin, and emerging threats like dibutylone, fentanyl, U-47700, and W-18 impacting communities worldwide. Law enforcement officials need to quickly identify suspected narcotics in the field to help keep drugs, and drug dealers, off the streets. Now with the expanded v1.6 library, the Thermo Scientific™ TruNarc™ Handheld Narcotics Analyzer enables officers, customs, border control and other personnel to scan more than 370 suspected illicit substances in a single, definitive test.
TruNarc analyzer is a handheld Raman system for rapid identification of suspected narcotics without directcontact for most samples. A single test for multiple controlled substances provides law enforcement with clear, definitive results for presumptive identification. Lightweight and easy to use, the TruNarc device delivers fast and accurate narcotics analysis anywhere it’s needed.
The TruNarc instrument easily identifies narcotics, stimulants, depressants, hallu-cinogens and analgesics using lab-proven Raman spectroscopy. The TruNarc device is able to analyze key drugs of abuse as well as common cutting agents, precursors and emerging threats such as cathinones (bath salts) and cannabinoids— ensuring that law enforcement personnel are always ahead of the curve.
