DrugDetect-F1 Fentanyl Detector: Safe/Easy/Quick


The highest priority for detection of illicit drugs for state, local and federal law enforcement in the US is fentanyl. Fentanyl is a special case given its extreme toxicity. The Lightsense DrugDetect-F1 has very high sensitivity to detect even trace (microgram) quantities of fentanyl, as well as methamphetamine, mixed in with other substances with both high sensitivity and specificity.

The DrugDetect-F1 provides a unique level of safety for Law Enforcement Officers. This easy-to-use point-and-shoot device is the size of a smartphone, robust, and detects the illicit drug with high specificity in seconds through plastic bags and plastic wrap, avoiding direct contract with highly toxic substances.
