Handheld Raman for Forensic Analysis - TacticID® N

The TacticID-N is specifically targeted at law enforcement personnel and forensic lab technicians and includes an extensive library of nearly 1,000 narcotics, pharmaceutical drugs, cutting agents and precursors. For maintaining the integrity of the validated B&W Tek libraries pre-installed on the system, the unit does not require custom user library creation.

This model also has the proprietary TacticID Operating System (TOS) installed within the unit, enabling identification and library and data storage/transfer. The TacticID software (TID) is developed to be used on personal computers for data and report management, enabling customers to export data and generate reports quickly and easily. The reporting output can also be customized with user logos, added fields, notes and more.

Furthermore, the TacticID offers encrypted WiFi synchronization and data transfer capabilities with network terminals for optimizing resources and time. TacticID OS is also capable of data and results transfer as well as easy library export.
