Overview of the Serim® Discern® HME Detection System

The Serim® Discern® HME Detection Kit provides an easy to use, convenient test that rapidly detects and distinguishes between ammonium nitrate, urea nitrate, oxidizers such as chlorates, bromates, peroxides (hydrogen peroxide, HMTD, TATP) and perchlorates (Tannerite®, flash powder). This is achieved by combining the responses of multiple test pads providing results within 60 seconds. A second test designed to specifically identify chlorate-based powders commonly used for HME’s is also included.

The kit is available in both a bulk kit containing all items needed to test 25 samples packaged in a hard shell case (8”x6”4”) and a single-use foil pack weighing less than 2 ounces. Replacement components are also available for replenishing the bulk kit as needed.
