Detector of Explosive, Chemical, Toxic and Narcotic substances IMS Venator

SecurSCAN® IMS Venator

IMS Venator is a powerful analyzer of chemical, explosive, toxic and narcotic substances which uses the ion mobility spectrometry technique.

Designed to detect very small traces quantities of substances present in the air around the objects analyzed (for example bags and backpacks), on fingers or on clothes.
IMS Venator is used by a single operator and is ideal for high security controls such as:

  • Inspection of vehicles, goods and people at customs;
  • Police operations in general;
  • Checks at airports;
  • Controls by scientific research organisations;
