Agentase™ C1 (Formerly Fido C1 CAD Kit)

Agentase™ C1 is a chemical agent detection kit (formerly named Fido C1 CAD KIT) that uses enzyme-based technology to detect class-specific chemical warfare agent (CWA) and selected other toxic chemical contamination on a variety of surfaces at trace level. Emergency responders use the Agentase™ C1 sensors to conduct surface, solid and liquid interrogation for the presence of nerve (G&V series), blood (AC) and blister (HD) agents, acids, bases, aldehydes and oxidizers. The Agentase™ C1 kit is provided in a small carry pouch weighing less than 1 lb and contains six sensors, which can be custom-configured for the emergency response mission requirement. The sensors do not destroy the sample and can be saved for eventual forensic analysis. The kit also includes a tool specifically designed to handle bulk samples. The Agentase™ C1 sensors detect trace levels of hazards and are resistant to common environmental interferents. Detection occurs within 5 minutes.
