Chemical Imaging Technology for Detecting Biological Agents
|Point Detection of BG in Complex Background
Raman Chemical Image
Chemical Imaging combines molecular spectroscopy and digital imaging, and has been demonstrated for rapid, non-contact optical sensing of biological agents without the use of reagents or enhancements. Conventional means of detecting and identifying biological agents using reagent-based tools, including immunoassay, genetic markers or cell culturing, are fundamentally slow or too costly, due to the reliance on expensive consumables.
Why Use Chemical Imaging Technology for Biological Agent Detection?
- Detect and identify without reagents
- Detect multiple threat agents simultaneously on complex surfaces
- Use multiple, independent detection strategies to reduce false alarms
- Detect in real-time; answer in minutes, not days
- Miniaturizable and fieldable in hardened configurations
- Exploit a comprehensive, upgradeable signature library for discrimination of hoaxes and threats
ChemImage, in partnership with the US Government, is developing and validating biological agent detection sensors that operate in point, proximity, remote and standoff modes. Please contact ChemImage for additional information on our remote and standoff capabilities
