Detection Kits, Chemical Agent

Definition : Detection kits designed to detect and identify chemical agents, mainly nervous and/or blister liquids and/or aerosols. The method used is typically an enzymatic substrate-based reaction; the presence of agents is indicated by a specific color change. Chemical agent detection kits are very sensitive tools to detect nerve agents (e.g., VX and G series such as tabun and sarin) and blister agents including mustard and lewisite. Some kits can also detect blood agents, including cyanide products such as hydrogen cyanide and cyanogen chloride. These kits are very useful in determining areas of contamination. Most kits are based either on chemical agent strip detection reagents or colorimetric tubes; kits specially designed for detection and identification of chemical agents in treated and/or untreated water samples are also available. Chemical agent detection kits are used by healthcare workers, rescuers, firefighters, and military personnel for rapid detection in contaminated or potentially contaminated areas.
