The web is filled with CBRNE product listings, but many of these are simply advertising placements from the equipment manufacturers. Here we’ve compiled a brief summary of the few, truly independent sources of detailed information on CBRNE detection equipment. Each one has a unique focus: technical specifications; technology validation; maintenance and repair; and suitable applications. Are we missing something? Please post a comment or send us an email!
CBRNE Tech Index
An extensive database of CBRNE detection equipment and product specifications—ranging from simple test strips to large-scale laboratory devices—assembled by independent testing and evaluation firm, MRI Global. The database is organized by threat type, detection technology, and application. Users can compare various products and extensive set of technical specifications.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate established the System Assessment and Validation for Emergency Responders (SAVER) Program to assist emergency responders making procurement decisions. While searching and filtering this database can be somewhat cumbersome, the information it contains provides detailed assessments of a wide range of responder equipment.
READITRAK CBRNE KNOWLEDGE BASE
As part of KD Analytical’s ReadiTrak™ instrument maintenance management platform, the CBRNE Knowledge Base is a large and growing library of CBRNE detector maintenance, repair, and operations information including FAQs, troubleshooting, standard operating procedures and equipment documentation. A significant portion of the knowledge base is now available for free, without a ReadiTrak subscription.
WMD Detector Selector
The U.S. Army’s database of detection and diagnostic technologies based on the Global CBRN Detector Market Survey. A unique feature of this searchable catalog is each technology is scored by its suitability for four scenarios of use: field/man portable, mobile/field laboratory, diagnostic laboratory/point of care, and high sensitivity/high throughput analytical laboratory.
