Field Forensics manufactures three product lines of "colorimetric" detection kits for explosives detection and precursor identification. "Colorimetric" means that the response of the kits to a positive detection or identification is a color change, visible to the human eye. In our kits the color change is obvious. The product lines are as follows:

The E.L.I.T.E.™ Series, which includes the Model EL100 and the Model EL240 were designed for trace detection of explosives. The Model EL100 is designed for trace detection of the nitrogen-based explosives. The Model EL240 is designed for trace detection of peroxide-based explosives such as TATP, HMTD, and MEKP as well as chlorate mixtures. Click here for more information.

The IDEX™ Series, includes several models for the identification of bulk compounds, primarily precursors for home-made explosives, and each model in the series identifies just one target substance. As new compounds become a threat IDEX models are added. Right now there are IDEX units for compounds including ammonium, urea nitrate, chlorate, perchlorate, nitrate, phosphate, acetic anhydride, and peroxide. Click here for more information.

The ULTRA™ Series, the latest addition to the FFI lineup, is a combination of detection and identification - trace and bulk. This unique new series combines trace detection with specific identification of many target compounds, home-made explosives and precursors, such as ammonium nitrate, chlorates, urea nitrate and peroxide.
