Revolutionary New Drug Testing Device Revealed

The world’s first prototype of a hand-held fingerprint drug testing device has been created by UK technology company Intelligent Fingerprinting.  The unique device detects drugs and other substances from the sweat contained in fingerprints and will enable mobile testing with rapid results.

 

The device will enable testing of fingerprints for illegal drugs and other substances using disposable cartridges. The samples are quick and easy to collect and do not require specialist handling or biohazard precautions. Because of the imaging of the fingerprint, they have an in-built watertight chain of evidence continuity and are almost impossible to cheat.

 

The potential uses for the device are wide ranging and cover testing individuals in the workplace -  especially in safety critical industries where there is a need to judge whether someone is ‘fit for duty’ - through to screening drivers at the roadside for drug-driving impairment.
