"We have solved 2 drive by shootings using the XCAT to swab the outside of the vehicle and we have used it several times to swab individuals."

Richard Phillips

City of Griffin Police Department, Griffin, GA

"Recently we had a homicide and we had 3 suspects in custody. XCAT tested positive on two which helped the bad guys talk and kick in to it. A better story, we had a neighborhood shooting where 2 males were taken into custody after being seen running after the shots were fired. The detectives spoke with the males who claimed they didn't see anything and were not involved. The detectives believed them and were ready to release them. I then used XCAT and received a positive hit on one of the males. The detectives then went back at him and he confessed to holding the gun at one point. This is a great tool."

“Thanks for a great product! We used the XCAT to swab an unattended suitcase outside the church and were able to clear it without calling the City Bomb Squad. A scary package can be a lot less scary once you know it’s a nothing deal!”

“… I have personally used this kit (XCAT) in teaching shooting reconstruction in a dozen courses across the country as well as tested it within my own laboratory, and could not be more pleased with the results."

“We’ve had people say they didn’t fire a shot or they didn’t fire it at the person or something, and when they see that light turn red right in front of them, they change their story. The XCAT has directly lead to several arrests”
