Acro, Inc., a leading manufacturer of explosive detection solutions for the homeland security market and related sectors, announced earlier this week that it unveiled its all-new ACRO-Mini-ETK and ACRO- CH.E.T. products at the Counter Terror Expo 2010 in London. The exhibition features over 300 international leading vendors.
“We had a very successful showing of our newest products at the Counter Terror Expo last week,” stated Gadi Aner, President and Chief Executive Officer of Acro, Inc. “Our UK representatives reported that traffic to our exhibition booth was non-stop and received a lot of interest in our products from potential customers in the UK.”
The ACRO-Mini-ETK contains four crushable ampoules protected by plastic mini tubes, filled with liquid reagents for the detection of explosives. Each kit contains sampling paper, a quick reference table and instructions. Designed for the purpose of distinguishing explosive and non-explosive materials, the kit is capable of identifying four classes comprising the majority of explosives currently in use and revealing their traces on the body and various items such as clothes, suitcases, door handles and car surfaces. The ACRO-Mini-ETK has already been successfully used by Israeli police and security forces of other countries around the world.
The ACRO-CH.E.T. (Chlorates Explosives Tester) is a light, easy-to-use, disposable, pocket-sized device that immediately and accurately identifies chlorate based explosives and can be used independently or as part of a total systems solution. Boasting low false positive and negative alarm rates, the ACRO-CH.E.T. is very sensitive and can detect 10 micrograms of chlorate based explosives traces.
