The explosives test that provides security
easy to use. fast. reliable
The explosives detection methods hergex ® 1000 and hergex ® 2000 open up new dimensions in detection. A simple test stick is sufficient to detect dangerous high-energy substances quickly and reliably. In the case of the most commonly used and highly sensitive homemade explosive TATP, it is not even necessary to touch the substance. The gas phase above tiny crystals in a container are enough to detect this peroxide-based explosive within seconds.
Within 15 seconds, the color of the stick changes and shows the result of the test. Everything needed to perform the test is in a handy and lightweight container that fits comfortably in a jacket pocket. There is no need for power, electronics, warm-up time, maintenance or professional training.
1-Feld hergex ® Stick
Peroxide-based explosives (popular with terrorists,
ingredients easy to obtain), e.g. TATP (= tri-acetone-tri-peroxide) -
The field changes color from red to green after ~ 15 sec.
1-Feld hergex ® Stick
Nitrogen-based explosives (mostly used by the military),
e.g. Nitro-Glycerin (NG) -
The field changes color from green to brown after another ~ 15 sec
The test strips are particularly suitable for use on site under real-life conditions, e.g. police operations, investigations in illegal laboratories, bomb disposal and security checks. Most importantly, they provide immediate safety for on-site responders.
This world-first and unique testing method will transform explosives testing and provide security on a national and international level.
The simple, sensitive and reliable explosives detection methods with hergex® 1000 or 2000 give you a better basis for decision-making in hazardous situations. The hergex test has already been used in numerous operations, for example:
- State Security
- Public Events
- Illegal Labs
- Border Controls
- Vehicle Inspections
- On-Site Forensics after Explosions
SIMPLE. FAST. RELIABLE
During operations, police officers or bomb disposal experts may come across a wealth of containers and bottles containing substances in illegal laboratories. These could contain drugs, explosives or precursors for synthesis. Officials must first ensure their own safety. Since homemade explosives such as TATP are very sensitive to shock, friction and heat, it can be extremely dangerous to take samples for later analysis in the laboratory. With the hergex® tests, it is possible to immediately determine whether the substance in question is TATP without touching the powder and without the risk of causing an explosion.
The hergex® tests are also suitable for post-explosion investigations to identify traces of remaining explosives.
