Acro offers new hand-held explosives detectors
Caesarea, Israel-based Acro, Inc. has signed a license agreement with the technology transfer company of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
The new technology, developed by Prof. Joseph Almog, former head of the Division of Identification and Forensic Science (DIFS) of the Israel Police, represents a “simple but sensitive and specific color test for the improvised explosive urea nitrate,” the company notes.
"This new product, which has already been tested and used in Israel, expands our product portfolio. It demonstrates our strategy to help our clients with a broad variety of simple and inexpensive solutions for the intricate problems of explosives detection," says Gadi Aner, CEO of Acro.
Acro's advisory board, the company notes, includes Nobel Prize laureate Prof. K. Barry Sharpless, and Prof. Richard Lerner, President and CEO of The Scripps Research Institute. nike outlet in kissimmee
