FLIR Agentase C2 chemical agent disclosure spray (ADS) is the most sensitive detection technology available. It complements electronic sensors by providing the ability to map chemical agent contamination for emergency response missions, as well as aid in the decontamination of personnel or equipment after exposure to CWAs, specifically nerve agents (G- & V-series) and sulfur mustard (HD). Agentase C2 can be used at many stages of the hazard management process to minimize spread of contamination.

Make the invisible threat visible.

  • Most Sensitive Chemical Point Detector

    Detects sub-microgram levels of chemical agents within five minutes and reveals exact location of agent on surface

  • Complements Other Chemical Sensing Technologies

    Non-destructive spray allows for sample extraction and analysis via GC/MS during forensic investigations

  • Multi-Purpose and Easy-to-Use

    Spray options include standard, forensic, fluorescent, and cold weather and are offered in two applicator sizes; one-hour training

Sampling & Analysis
Sample Introduction
Spray directly onto surface
Sample Phase
Surface-based detection
Sampling & Analysis
Detection within 5 mins
Threats
Enzyme formulations include: nerve agent (V- & G-series) and blister agent (HD); training disclosure spray also available
System Interface
Fluorescent Additive
Enhances visual response of standard spray under challenging lighting conditions or surfaces when used with UV-light
Display and Alerts
Colorimetric sensor response; Standard nerve agent and training spray is yellow when applied to a surface and surface changes to red within 5 mins if contaminated; blister agent spray is applied red and changes to yellow if clean but stays red if contaminated; forensic spray is translucent when applied and contamination is visible under UV-light
