ScentLogix™ VDM Scent Kits for the Detection of
Illicit and Hazardous Substances

ScentLogix™ VDM Scent Kits for the Detection of Illicit and Hazardous Substances (VDM stands for Vapor Detecting Machines) are the world’s first purpose built non-hazardous scent kit for the calibration of machines and instruments that use vapour sampling methods for the detection of illicit and hazardous substances such as explosives and narcotics, for implementing research activities, and for generation realistic training programs and scenarios involving these machines.

Such machines include large port-of-entry type detection machines such as Ionscan Sentinel II (made by Smiths detection), VE6000® (made by Scintrex Trace), EntryScan Series (made by GE), portable commercial systems such as Mobile Trace, StreetLab, Itemiser, Itemizer FX (made by GE) Ionscan Series, Saber 4000 (made by Smiths Detection), The EGISTM Defender Explosives Trace Detection (ETD) System (made by Thermo Scientific), Mini-Nose™ 1000 Series (made by Scent Detection Technologies), E5000®, N2000®, E3xxx® and EVD® 3xxx Series of detectors (made by Scintrex Trace), Fido XT (made by ICx Technologies) and for laboratory bench instruments used in electronic nose, optical, IR/Raman, THz and other R&D activities in vapor detection.

The Kits comprise of research-grade scent signatures and integrants that can be used for a vast array of methodical R&D in explosives and narcotics vapor detection. Furthermore, being essentially fragrances, ScentLogix™ VDM ScentKits components are non-detonable and non-narcotic and so can be handled, transported, used and stored in methods and forms, which, as hazardous substances, would otherwise be hazardous or impossible.

Just like the ScentLogix™ K9 Explosives Detection Scentkit, ScentLogix™ VDM ScentKits are available for a full spectrum of chemical explosives, including entropy-burst explosives such as TATP and HMTD, in either parent odor or in scent simulant configurations. Scent simulant configurations are particularly useful for advanced research and development work involving the comparison to the responses of surrogate scents to electronic detectors.
