Access Security extends further to the visitor entrances to prisons and remand centres where this technology is used to identify attempts to smuggle drugs to the inmates. Trace drug detection plays a significant role in the detection of contraband, and DE-tector is used in customs facilities to identify whether suspicious packages contain contraband drugs.
The Bruker RoadRunner - a battery-portable, hand-held, version of this technology that affords a greater degree of transportability; literally a "go anywhere" device. Just like the bench-top DE-tector, this technology will detect traces of both drugs and explosives. The hand-portable System helps users in major facilities to improve their productivity as the device can be carried round with them and suspicious packages tested at will. This lightweight system weighs less than 3,5Kg and features hot-swappable batteries for extended deployments.
