Narcotics Identification for Law Enforcement
Quick identification, definitive results
The global drug problem is increasing, with production and trafficking of common street fentanyl analogs including carfentanil, methamphetamines, cocaine, MDMA (ecstasy), heroin, and cathinones (bath salts) impacting communities worldwide and stressing already constrained investigative resources. Now, mexedrone, carfentanil, acrylfentanyl, and common street fentanyl analogs have become potent threats. Law enforcement personnel need handheld narcotics analyzers to quickly identify suspected illegal drugs in the field and get clear, definitive results.
Bring the accuracy and reliability of a lab-proven technology directly to the scene with the Thermo Scientific TruNarc Handheld Narcotics Analyzer. Based on handheld Raman technology, the TruNarc analyzer is lightweight, easy to use, and quickly identifies suspected narcotics in the field to help keep drugs, and drug dealers, off the streets. The TruNarc analyzer can sample most substances through sealed packaging, increasing officer safety.

Narcotics, opioids, and synthetic drug identification categories
TruNarc v1.8 adds field identification capability for many new high priority Alarm substances including several fentanyl derivatives, with the major addition of carfentanil, acrylfentanyl, fentanyl precursors (NPP and ANPP) and pharmaceutical variants (Alfentanil and Sufentanil).
Synthetic cathinones represent a global health crisis—and a tough law enforcement challenge. The TruNarc handheld analyzer is designed to identify numerous synthetic cathinones right at the scene, even those that are similar in appearance.
A handheld Raman analyzer can ID hundreds of narcotics, precursors or cutting agents in seconds – right at the scene. With high specificity, the TruNarc analyzer is non-destructive, non-contact and easy-to-use – a great tool for law enforcement officers to have with them for every call.
