SKU: Target-ID


Target-ID is the first Fourier-Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy analyzer specifically designed to support narcotics interdiction efforts. Combining the power, speed, and accuracy of FTIR with a library of up to 2,500 narcotics, precursors, common chemicals, and cutting agents; Target-ID returns identification results in a matter of seconds without damaging or degrading the sample.

In addition, Target-ID is capable of identifying emerging synthetic designer drugs. Its customizable user library easily allows localized drug variants to be added. Designed for ease
of use by personnel of different skill levels, minimal training is required for operation.

FTIR has long been a trusted method for the identification of unknown powders, liquids, gels, pastes and solids. In addition, FTIR spectroscopy is ideal for field use due to its ability to recognize and identify substances where other technologies fall short. Only a very small quantity of a sample is required for analysis and an integrated press ensures consistent and reliable pressure is made throughout the analysis process.

Lightweight and easily transportable, Target-ID provides hours of operation on a single battery charge and also accepts commercially available disposable batteries or line power if needed. The system offers an unmatched performance throughout an extreme temperature range and the revolutionary optical platform provides high vibration immunity even during the analysis period.

Smiths Detection has leveraged a best-in-class infrared spectroscopy platform with decades of experience to develop Target-ID, a product as advanced as it is cost effective.

A high contrast, full color LCD display allows for high viewing angles and visibility indoors or outdoors. An intuitive, color coded user interface guides the operator through each step of the sample preparation and analysis process. Target-ID is backed by ReachBackIDTM, a first rate 24/7/365 service and support program providing immediate, expert data analysis and technical support to ensure optimum product performance.

Target-ID is a part of a large product portfolio of Smiths Detection, a leading worldwide provider of government regulated technology products and advanced services that aid in the detection and identification of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) material and other dangerous or illegal substances.
