Detection Kits, Explosive Trace
Definition : Detection kits designed to detect and identify traces of explosives (e.g., group A explosives such as TNT and TNB; group B explosives such as RDX, H, and C4; compounds containing nitrates that may be used in explosives). These kits typically consist of a set of reagents (e.g., sprays), detecting papers and/or pads, verification pads, and other manual tools that may be needed for proper explosive identification. Explosive trace detection kits permit in situ screening for concealed explosives; they are also useful as a pre- and/or postblast analytical tool. They are used by emergency teams and also by investigative, forensic, and law-enforcement personnel.
