  IONSCAN 600 Brochure

The IONSCAN Narcotics Trace Detector, model 600 is advanced explosive detection equipment and a narcotics trace detector, effective at detecting various kinds of substances (including fentanyl) in just a few seconds.


The IONSCAN 600 is a highly sensitive trace detector for narcotics and explosives in a light-weight portable desktop configuration.

It features a proprietary non-radioactive ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) source, which means licensing from national nuclear regulatory agencies is not required, saving time on administration and radiation testing.

The IONSCAN 600 provides accurate trace explosives and narcotics detection simultaneously or can be programmed for dedicated explosives-only or narcotics-only detection depending on specific requirements

The universal software icon commands make training and operation of the IONSCAN 600 fast and easy

Onboard diagnostics also assist operators with maintenance and offer to troubleshoot for error resolution. With an optional built-in printer, users can analyze and print results on the spot.

The IONSCAN 600 (Explosives and Narcotics Trace Detector) is optimized for minimal maintenance and features a robust design to help enhance productivity.

The IONSCAN 600 provides accurate trace explosives and narcotics detection for global aviation and critical infrastructure markets.
