Thermo Scientific Gemini Analyzer with LowDoseID for narcotics analysis

Friday, 31 July, 2020 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific



New trends in the manufacture and distribution of illicit narcotics to include low, distributed concentrations to offset high chemical potency has created challenges in substance identification for customs, border protection, law enforcement, public safety officials and military personnel. The Thermo Scientific Gemini Analyzer, now with LowDoseID, specifically addresses the rising trend of low-concentration amounts of illicit substances.

The analyser combines Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) and surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) into one device to facilitate comprehensive and confirmatory chemical identification for substances with a concentration between 1 and 10%. The ability to detect small amounts of substances is important for first responders, particularly when identifying the presence of fentanyl, heroin and cocaine.

In addition to the introduction of LowDoseID, the Thermo Scientific Gemini Analyzer has also undergone a software update. The version 1.8 software enhances ease of use with on-screen colour-coded alerts based on analysis results and an expanded factory chemical library, which allows for increased identification capacity relative to prior software versions, as well as smoother operation. The product was originally created for military and hazmat situations where ruggedisation is a priority, which means it is designed to work even in harsh environments.
