GE Security, a business of GE Enterprise Solutions, announced that the Itemiser DX, desktop explosives trace-detection equipment, has successfully completed the rigorous TSA certification process in the DHS Transportation Security Laboratory, as well as extensive operational testing in a live airport environment. As the latest GE trace detector to receive TSA certification, the Itemiser DX provides effective threat substance identification, including even the most complex explosive substances from a single sample.
GE Security's flexible, lightweight detector simultaneously analyzes both positive and negative ions, which allows for the ultimate explosive contraband detection. Similar in appearance to the GE Itemiser3, this trace detector was designed to be more sensitive and can identify a larger number of threat substances. The Itemiser DX uses advanced trace technology and provides results in seconds where other methods, particularly those that rely on visual detection, may take longer or at times fail.
"We are very pleased that the Itemiser DX is the latest detector to receive certification from the Transportation Security Administration,” said Dennis Cooke of GE Security. “As one of only two companies certified with this type of product, it is a true testament of GE Security's commitment to developing innovative solutions that meet the demands of various industries and governments to ensure the safety and security of people.”
