1st Detect develops, manufactures and sells chemical analyzers for use in the airport security, military, food and beverage, and breath analysis markets. Our chemical analyzers can identify chemicals with more accuracy and precision than competing analyzers given their extreme sensitivity and specificity. Leveraging miniature mass spectrometry technology originally developed for NASA to use on the International Space Station, 1st Detect's series of analyzers enable real-time analytics and are significantly smaller, faster and less expensive than competing mass analyzers.
BreathTech is developing the BreathTest-1000™ to screen for volatile organic compound (VOC) metabolites found in a person’s breath that could indicate they may have been infected with the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (“COVID-19”) or the resulting disease, pneumonia.
The AGLAB-1000™ series of mass spectrometers have been designed for the agriculture industry as field instruments to quickly and easily analyze complex chemical compounds found in organic plant material and extracts. While there are many agriculture applications, AgLab has concentrated its efforts in the highly regulated cannabis and hemp sectors.
