DISCONTINUED - The patented colorimetric technology from Cardiff University brings sensitivity and specificity for a colorimetric system for detection of CWA agents.The operator removes a swab, samples the surface or liquid and then the operator cracks the snap valve at the top of the swab which releases the unique chemistries onto the swab tip. If agent is present a color change will occur rapidly.
