Caption: Portable screening devices hold the key to a new era of product-safety screening. By allowing investigators to screen products earlier in the supply chain, these portable devices could significantly cut risks from contamination or counterfeiting of medicines, dietary supplements, cosmetics, and perhaps even foods. A trace detector can detect threats from explosives, chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial chemicals or narcotics packaged into a small instrument. It can also analyse either trace vapour or particle samples and can detect and identify over 40 threat substances in approximately 10 seconds.
