Rigaku Analytical Devices has announced the launch of the handheld CQL Narc-ID 1064 nm Raman analyzer for the presumptive identification of narcotics, precursor chemicals and cutting agents – even in non-visible amounts with the optional QuickDetect feature.

Designed for counter-narcotics agencies, law enforcement, crime laboratories, prison facilities, customs agencies, or public safety efforts, the CQL Narc-ID can have a direct impact on protecting communities from dangerous chemicals that currently pervade the illicit drug supply market.

The utilization of 1064 nm Raman technology means users have the ability to scan through translucent packaging and identify dirty or mixed substances at the point of need, a common issue for older Raman technology.

The CQL Narc-ID joins Rigaku’s portfolio of existing handheld 1064 nm Raman analyzers, including the CQL Max-ID and CQL Gen-ID. The Narc-ID is different in that it was developed specifically for narcotics analysis. Users benefit from a smaller, focused, specialized library, specialized algorithms with an optimized result output, as well as the ability to easily create PDF reports for evidentiary needs.

See a demonstration of the CQL Narc-ID in action at the IACP conference at booth #1411.
