ROCKVILLE, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 02/05/14 -- RedXDefense, a leader in the field of narcotics, explosives and gunshot residue detection equipment, announced today a 37% reduction in the cost of the narcotics sampling cards for the XCAT handheld detection system. In addition, the Company has released a new gunshot residue sampling card with an adhesive strip to further improve sample collection. These improvements and cost reductions continue to position the XCAT as the future of field testing and as a viable and attractive replacement to the Field Test Kits. Law Enforcement Agencies in 26 states and 9 countries are now successfully using the XCAT.
Tested and approved, the XCAT appears on the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Forensic Science's list of Approved Presumptive Field Tests for the Detection of Drugs and has been verified by the National Forensic Science Technology Center (NFSTC) to accurately detect the presence of commonly encountered illicit drugs.
Key attributes contributing to the XCATs popularity:
The XCAT uses detection cards with specially formulated detection inks and software to identify characteristics unique to each individual or group of chemically-related substances and returns a simple red or green light signal to the user. No libraries to match or update.
Founded in 2005 with Corporate Headquarters in Rockville, Maryland, RedXDefense is a privately-held small business focused on novel approaches to detection.
