Ahura Scientific, maker of various material detection systems out of Wilmington, MA, just released its latest field detector for sampling and identifying ingredients of chemical spills. The new system, called TruDefender FT, is based on Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR).
FTIR spectroscopy is a widely-accepted and highly-selective technique for chemical identification that is ideally-suited for many industries, including public safety applications like hazmat response. Building on its legacy in handheld Raman spectroscopy, Ahura Scientific recognized FTIR’s promise and developed an ultra-compact, easy-to-use FTIR system designed to the same exacting standards as the company’s award-winning FirstDefender®. The launch of the FTIR platform underscores the company’s ability to leverage different molecular spectroscopy methods to support an array of applications and markets.
