High pressure mass spectroscopy



Quickly identifies unknown solid and liquid chemicals down range including explosives, toxic industrial chemicals (TICs), chemical warfare agents (CWAs), narcotics, precursors, white powders and more.
Technology From: 908 Devices


The MX908® is a multi-mission tool utilized by elite responders conducting chemical, explosive, priority drug and HazMat operations around the world. Trace-level threat detection and discriminating selectivity deliver real-time actionable intelligence in seconds.

MX908 detects compounds at sensitivity levels comparable to ion mobility spectrometry (IMS). It also identifies threats at levels not much else can. The power of high-pressure mass spectrometry™ (HPMS) delivers unparalleled selectivity to accurately discriminate priority threats from the myriad of interferents that lead to false alarms with other technologies.

MX908 does the lab work. Simply choose a mission and analyse the sample. MX908 instructs you through all the necessary steps to get easily interpretable, actionable results in minutes. Trained users can get a refresh whenever they need it using the MX908 Walkthrough Mode.

The threat landscape will always evolve. MX908 is designed to evolve with it. Under the hood algorithms and analytics adapt to future threats like new fentanyl analogs and other novel material concerns on the fly with simple software updates to support the ongoing needs of your mission. Advanced predictive classification algorithms unlock detection capabilities for more than 2000 fentanyl types. The MX908 is also the only field-deployable tool that can identify A-series CWAs, also known as FGAs or Novichoks, at trace levels. It identifies vapor-phase CWAs in seconds, and distinguishes true agents from CWA simulants. Real-time quantitation also shows responders how much agent is present. Non-volatile threats can be identified in about 60 seconds.
