908 Devices



4.4 lbs.(2 kg) handheld MS that provide IMS sensitivity and MS selectivity.

A revolutionary technology that provides speed, fidelity and powerful focus on a broad range of threats. Utilizing High Pressure Mass Spectrometry ™ and patented Microscale Ion Traps, M908 is the new standard for threat detection and identification.

Unique Specification to immediate alarm of bellowed Priority Threats – Solid, Liquid or Vapor.

Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs), Toxic Industrial Materials (TIMs), “Headspace” Gas/Vapors, Chemical Warfare Agents (CWAs), Chemical Warfare Precursors, Explosive Materials, Explosive Precursors, Drug Substances.


  • First handheld MS – 10 times smaller size of field portable MS
  • Unique ability to identify threats in all phases - Gas, Liquids & Solid detection/identification
  • Unique ability to identify threats from TRACE levels to BULK amounts.
  • Targets only HIGH priority threats - CWAs, TICs, Precursors and Advanced Threats
  • Precision targeting that can find the needle in the haystack – incredible immunity to non-targets.
  • Greatly reduces false positives, lengthy analysis and the inability to identify threats in the field.
  • No warm-up, ready in less than 1 minute and analysis in seconds.
  • Expandable and adaptable to new threats.
  • Little to no maintenance: replaceable/rechargeable batteries, replaceable cores
  • Minimal training: possibly the simplest tool in the box, easy for usage
  • Independently tested to MIL-STD - decon-able and drop-able
  • Designed for accuracy and speed
