SSAMI

The Safe Sampling and Multiplexing Indicator (SSAMI) device is coupled with a Lateral Flow Strip Test Assembly Container. The SSAMI – Sampler is common to all contaminated surface sampling and can be used to sample biological agents, chemical agents, explosives, narcotics, and other pathogens. It comprises a pre-moistened sponge that is used to collect the sample. Once returned to the housing, the sample is safely contained and allows ‘no contamination’ transfer of at least 1.8 mls sample to be injected into the SSAMI – Detector. The SSAMI – Detector, containing up to 12 threat detectors, will then analyze and display the results. A second sample is retained in the SSAMI – Sampler which can be used for confirmatory testing in a second SSAMI – Detector, retained for further laboratory analysis or safely stored as evidence. The SSAMI can be configured to customer specifications.
