The Nano-Nose Provides Instantaneous, Mobile Analysis of Biological and Chemical Terror Agents Never before Available
Since the anthrax attacks of 2001, the U.S. government has been developing a task force to combat biological terrorism. Limitations of technology, however, have crippled our ability to respond to a threat quickly enough to make a real difference. Fortunately, a new technology may offer a solution.
The electronic nose, or e-nose, manufactured by QualSec, Inc. is at the vanguard of biological and chemical terror detection. The handheld, easy-to-use device utilizes breakthroughs in nanotechnology to instantaneously analyze and quantify airborne particles, giving homeland security an edge in the event of biochem attacks.
As noted in Homeland Security Today, the proprietary ROder Technology employed in QualSec's Nano-Nose is unique in its ability to provide real-time on-site analyses never previously offered by electronic nose manufacturers. The Nano-Nose also requires no extensive training for accurate usage and is priced similar devices offered by competitors.
The government's BioWatch system currently in place is a network of sensors built to detect deadly airborne pathogens. William O. Jenkins, Jr. of the Government Accountability office notes that the BioWatch system requires up to 34 hours to detect and confirm pathogens. These are 34 hours that we don't have.
The capability of QualSec's e-nose to function more quickly and accurately in the field than the competition makes it the first choice in the war against terrorism.
