Security and First Responders to Use Raptor’s Patented Nanotechnology-Based SAFE-T Products

Raptor Detection Technologies declared that its Substance Activated Fast Evaluation Technology (SAFE-T) product line built using a patented nanotechnology, known as molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs), are currently offered to security, law enforcement and first responders. The technology is capable of precisely assessing a potential danger under time-critical circumstances.

MIPs used in SAFE-T products can selectively detect microscopic amounts of explosives or other molecules that can cause harm to humans and the environment including chemical agents, toxins, pesticides, biological agents, explosives, and poisons.

Raptor’s SAFE-T MIPs undergo a drastic color change when they detect dangerous materials. This chemical reaction can be seen with the naked eye. When an individual’s skin or finger containing traces of explosive substance comes in contact with MIP material, it will produce a colorful fingerprint that can be seen with the naked eye. SAFE-T MIPs is already used by the US Army and other military agencies.

SAFE-TMIPs are stable, strong and offer resistance to a wide variety of conditions such as temperature, humidity, alkalinity, and acidity. Additionally, they are cheap, safe to manufacture and can be printed, sprayed or spin-coated into commercial equipment to detect a wide range of compounds, substances, and biological agents. They can be easily integrated into existing systems and products such as security badges, event tickets and other applications.

Raptor has responded to military requests with its SAFE-T products and is capable of delivering its scientifically established nanotechnologies to other sectors of law enforcement and public safety.
