ScentLogix™ K9 ScentKits for the Detection of
Illicit and Hazardous Substances

ScentLogix™ K9 Scentkits for the Detection of Illicit and Hazardous Substances are the world's first scientifically developed, purpose built, multiplatform scent kit for the evaluation and training of detection K9’s. The currently available explosives and narcotic detection scentkits were developed to provide essential scent signatures of explosives and narcotics, which, in conjunction with a comprehensive training regiment, will enhance the scope of detection of canines and other search-and-detect creatures towards the detection of these substances.

ScentLogix™ K9 ScentKits have been formulated to produce scent signatures identical to the freshly made form of its representative hazardous material. This is because freshly made explosives have broader scent signatures and produces all the necessary odoriferous markers for an effective search-and-detect training program, especially those markers that are absent within old explosives. Thus, ScentLogix ™ provides the full spectrum of scent components within a hazardous material and releases these odors in a way that characteristics are retained for as long a possible.

Furthermore, being essentially fragrances, ScentLogix™ K9 ScentKit components are non-detonable, 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.

As a purpose built kit, ScentLogix™ ScentKits for the Detection of Illicit and Hazardous Substances truly provides both K9 trainers and K9-involved scientists with scientific tools and methods to enhance their respective programs. For trainers, it helps with running effective search-and-detect programs; for scientists, it provides the tools to help make those logical enquiries that build up into formidable postulations in structure-odor relationships, mammalian olfactory gene expression and allow cross-pollinating investigations into non-mammalian olfactory processes. Only with enhanced collaborations between scientist and trainers can breakthroughs in search-and-detect training methodologies and the scientific understanding of the olfactory workings of K9’s, their olfactory limits, and applications to biological and non-biological olfaction occur.

All ScentLogix™ K9 ScentKits are available 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 biological and electronic detectors to surrogate scents.

With the deft use of ScentLogix™ K9 ScentKits trainers can be more truly involved in being part of a process that, through scientific discovery, showcases K9’s as what they justly are – a man’s best friend with an olfactory search-and-detect capacity that surpasses the best electronic detectors available - and help propel canines to the helm of R&D attention and appropriations from both government and industry as vanguards in the protection of infrastructure and citizenry.
