About

What is the Nanosniffer?

  • Nanosniffer is the world’s first Explosive Trace Detector by using microsensor technology.
  • Indigenous: NanoSniffer is a 100% Made in India product in every terms starting from research and development to its manufacturing.
  • Type of material:It detects all classes of military, conventional and homemade explosives.
  • NanoSniffer gives visible & audible alerts with sunlight-readable color display.
  • Patent: The core technology of NanoSniffer is patented in the U.S. & Europe.

How will it benefit?

  • NanoSniffer provides trace detection of a nano-gram quantity of explosives & delivers result in seconds.
  • This Home-grown Explosive trace detector device (ETD), NanoSniffer can detect explosives in less than 10 seconds.
  • The newly developed device would help in reducing our dependency on imported explosive trace detector devices.
  • It will also encourage indigenous institutions, startups and medium-scale industries to research & develop products. It’s a perfect example of lab to market product.
