The FilmArray is able to identify, in a closed system, dozens of the most lethal viruses and bacteria, including emerging infectious diseases. The easy-to-use, syringe-loaded system represents the next generation in automated detection systems
The RAZOR EX system detects and identifies biological agents using cutting edge technology. Made for field use, the RAZOR EX is compact, lightweight, and easy to use. It is a field PCR unit that is fast, with ultra-reliable DNA based results. Created for first responders and front line military troops, it is easily operated while working in protective equipment under extreme conditions.
This demo shows the Unified Fire Authority, Hazmat 6 of Salt Lake City, Utah using the RAZOR EX to test for a suspicious white powder.
Use of a commercially available polymerase chain reaction (PCR) system for screening a powder sample is demonstrated. Note: This is only a demonstration and required personal protective equipment (PPE) is not being worn. Actual required PPE will depend on the specific situation.
