Benefits of Klarite to homeland security
Klarite surface enhanced Raman detection offers numerous benefits
to early detection of homeland security threats, including high
selectivity and specific identification.
It is extremely sensitive; detection of single molecules - equivalent
to one bucket of chemical in the whole Atlantic ocean - has been
recorded with variations of surface enhanced Raman technology. The
technology is compatible with portable (under 5lb) first responder
reader instruments on the market. It is also water sample compatible.
However these benefits do not have to be taken in isolation, as
the technique can be combined with other detection technologies
to provide even more robust warning systems.
Fast detection, in seconds to minutes, with little to no sample
preparation, enables the triggering of additional detection elements.
Non-destructive, optical reading enables sample transfer to orthogonal
detection techniques for confirmation.
Low-cost, light-weight reading technology enables combined detection
technologies to be delivered within budget and weight targets
