White Paper: Lesser and Lesser becoming Deadlier and Deadlier: Detecting Low Doses of Lethal Opioids

Finished products in small, difficult to detect packets is the latest trend in drug trafficking. With low concentrations of very toxic drugs becoming increasingly common, the Gemini Analyzer with LowDoseID is a valuable addition to the analytical detection and identification toolbox of law enforcement and border protection and will doubtless save lives.

Video: Low concentration analysis of narcotics

Redefining how agencies perform narcotic and chemical identification

Featuring low concentration identification capabilities for street narcotics, the Gemini Analyzer with Low Dose ID is the newest tool in stopping the distribution of illicit drugs.

Scan formats

Gemini offers two formats for scanning. ID mode is ideal for advanced users looking for chemical identification. Screener mode offers a simpler interface, focused on low concentration narcotics detection.

Intuitive operation for any user

The graphical interface ensures that minimal training is required for proficiency. For new users, the Scan Assist feature guides technology selection with a series of easy questions. The consistent interface and workflow across technologies ensure that experienced operators can easily proceed with sampling.

Scan delay

In addition to the Raman scan delay, adjustable laser power, and other built-in safety features, Gemini introduces the industry’s first FTIR scan delay, enabled by the motorized anvil. 

Flexible input

Operators can easily navigate features using either the tactile keypad or resistive touch screen, even when wearing protective gloves.

3 Technologies in 1
Dual technologies for complementary and confirmatory analysis
Complementary and confirmatory

Raman and FTIR are highly specific and reliable identification methods, each with strengths and limitations. By integrating both into a single analyzer, operators harness the power of each technology while enabling a broader range of chemical identification.

SERS - low concentration analysis
By utilizing the enhanced hardware and software of the Gemini analyzer, combined with SERS (Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy), Gemini is able to deliver low concentration analysis and results for key narcotics.

Designed for survivability
From extreme climates to aggressive handling, Gemini has been certified to the latest military standards for ruggedness—drop, shock, vibration, temperature, immersion and much more.
