Smiths Detection has showcased BioFlash Biological Identifier, a breakthrough rapid, biological aerosol collection and identification system. 

The instrument can be installed for detecting the presence of Corona virus in enclosed areas as it can provide rapid, sensitive and specific identification of biological threat agents and other pathogens including toxins.  The portable and compact BioFlash offers breakthrough capabilities in sampling performance, reliability and operational cost.

The instrument has a range of market applications including networked air monitoring for building protection, mailroom screening for military and commercial security, and a biological identifier for reconnaissance vehicles and mobile labs.

The system has the capability to give out 3D images of the scanned objects for detection of illegal materials and equipment. Airports, airlines and authorities around the world trust Smiths Detection to deliver integrated solutions that provide not only security, but the operational efficiency and scalability they need to keep their passengers moving and infrastructure safe.
