ELITE™ detection and identification kits are simple, rugged & reliable. They detect and identify commercial, military and home-made explosives (HME), trace and bulk. There are two models, the EL100, which detects all nitrogen-based explosives and explosive precursor chemicals at trace levels. The EL200, which detects and identifies peroxide, perchlorate and chlorate-based HME and precursors, in liquid, vapor or solid forms. The EL300 detects all nitrogen-based explosives plus chlorate and peroxide-based explosives.
Simple, Rugged & Reliable Explosives Detection
E.L.I.T.E.™ explosives detection kits are some of the most convenient test kits on the market. Each one is self contained and has a long shelf-life. Users carry them in shirt pockets. Though small, the kits each detect a broad range of commercial, military, and home-made explosives. They can detect at trace levels down to single nano gram amounts. E.L.I.T.E.™ test kits are used by elite military, police, and security services worldwide.
There are three basic ELITE™ tests, the EL100*, the EL200**, and the EL300*.
EL100 – tests for nitro-aromatic, nitro-aliphatic and nitrate-based explosives and chemicals used to make them. Some of these compounds include:
Commercial, Military and Home-Made Explosives (HME), including TNT, DNT, TATB, RDX, HMX, EGDN, PETN, NG, NC, ANFO, ANS, and black powder…
EL200 – tests for chlorate, peroxide, and perchlorate-based HME and chemicals used to make them. Some of these compounds include:
TATP, HMTD, MEKP, flash powders, Armstrong’s mixture, Poor Man’s C4, potassium chlorate mixtures…
EL300 – tests for nitro-aromatic, nitro-aliphatic, peroxide, chlorate and nitrate-based explosives and precursor chemicals. Some of these compounds include:
Commercial, Military and HME, including TNT, DNT, TATB, RDX, HMX, EGDN, PETN, NG, NC, ANFO, ANS, TATP, HMTD, MEKP, black powder, flash powders, Armstrong’s mixture, Poor Man’s C4…
* The EL100 and EL300 have a heating step as part of the test. Both models use an automated electronic heater (though any heat source will do). Each is available with a built-in disposable heater as well, respectively models EL100EXO and EL300EXO.
** The EL200 recently replaced the EL240 in our product line-up. The EL200 tests for perchlorate-based explosives and precursor chemicals in addition to the peroxide and chlorate-based explosives and precursor chemicals.
E.L.I.T.E.™ colorimetric chemistry is unique, giving the user easily discernible colors and false-positive rates lower than other currently available test kit
