Fido® C3

DISCONTINUED: Fido C3 is a sensitive continuous air monitor available for Chemical Warfare Agent (CWA) detection. It detects CWAs before they cause harm or loss of life. The system is person-portable and detects nerve (G- & V- series) agent using patented enzyme polymer technology. Enzymes monitor for chemical agents using a cumulative exposure model like the human body. Fido C3 compliments currently fielded technologies by sensing otherwise undetected trace level CWAs and protecting people against low-level, long-term exposure.
