Government Uses for TraceX®

– Explosive Detection Kits for Government Agencies


In many cases, detecting just a trace of explosive material can make all the difference. Government officials can use the TraceX hand held explosive detector kit to discreetly detect the presence of explosive materials and their precursors in real-time. Using the TraceX hand held explosive detector is easy; minimal training is required. With a single test, an intelligence officer can detect all of the major families of explosives and explosive precursors.

As a hand-held explosive detector, TraceX is convenient for field use. When you need to know on the spot and can’t wait for laboratory analysis, the TraceX hand held explosives detector is your choice. TraceX works for bulk and trace explosives. Even if you can’t see it, TraceX will tell you if it’s there.

All major explosive materials are detected in a single swab. And, because the design keeps the user’s hands away from the collector to minimize contamination, you can have confidence in the results.

Hand held explosive detection has never been easier or more reliable.




Intelligence agencies deploy operatives and agents throughout the world. The duties of these intelligence operatives are wide ranging and so are the potential threats they face. When the threat of an explosive material is at hand the TraceX explosive detection kit allows an agent to quickly sample and test a suspected material. The TraceX kit identifies all major classes of explosives and their precursors with just one swab.


Embassies and consulates require stringent security to keep government officials safe. Screening embassy visitors before entry is commonplace.  Security personnel use TraceX when they suspect an explosive material may be present. With one swab of the subjects’ hands or belongings, the TraceX kit identifies all major classes of explosives and their precursors. Screening for bomb-makers, bombers, and suspected explosive substances has never been this straightforward and fast-acting.

Transportation & Border Security

Since the rise of the threat of terrorism and the increased responsibility to keep the public safe, transportation and border security personnel have increased screening technology and processes. Explosives Trace Detection (ETD) systems have become commonplace at airport security checkpoints. Trace detection of all major classes of explosives and their precursors is made easy by the TraceX explosive detection kit.
