To the human eye, the patent-pending detection wipe looks similar to a sanitizing wipe, however when exposed to an explosive contaminant the wipes rapidly change color, even indicating what kind of explosive property is present. This is made possible through the use of colorimetric reactions and gives law enforcement agents’ critical, real-time information as they monitor for pre-detonated explosives or investigate post-detonation residue.
TAMPA Fla. – Myakka Research Group, a technology research and development startup in Florida, filed a patent application revealing a new technology last month, which is designed to detect and identify explosive compounds quickly and easily.
