RedXDefense launches the XCAT Handheld Detector
The XCAT handheld detection system features automated, one-step detection of narcotics, homemade and high explosives, and gunshot residue. Among the intended users are: law enforcement, the military, federal agencies (FBI, CIA, DOI, DEA, DOS), border control, forensics experts, commercial security, special events screening, home & business (parental, insurance).
The XCAT is designed for sampling suspicious drugs and other substances on hands, vehicles, packages and surfaces. The unit displays a red or green light signal to the user simply indicating 'detection' or 'no detection' with no interpretation, no color charts, no spraying and no chemical exposure.

"I would recommend all airports get an XCAT. It is an effective, yet inexpensive tool for you to use to clear unattended bags without having to ask TSA."
Captain Steve Johnson, ACE
Richmond Co. Marshal's Office
"The XCAT provides law enforcement officers with the ability to determine quickly and effectively if the subject they have detained or under arrest has been exposed to GSR. This is ideal in that the typical method of sampling usually requires tests kits that need to be forwarded to a lab for evaluation and end results… ultimately leaving an investigation with no rapid results. The quick and easy return in the field can save time and allows the investigating officer to determine the case direction. The XCAT is also ideal to use in situations where multiple persons are detained for an investigation and determining who was ultimately responsible for the firearm crime. In homicide, suspicious deaths or questionable suicides with firearms the quick results aid investigators with information that can support or refute suspect/witness statements allowing the detectives the opportunity to use the fast results for investigation/interview efforts.."
Detective CSI Joanna Grivetti Richmond (CA) Police Department Homicide Unit
"I ordered some of these units (XCATs) and as with any new technology there was some skepticism. However, we conducted controlled field tests using explosives, GSR and several different forms of narcotics. Our tests were nothing short of rigorous, testing several known positives and known negatives. All test results were accurate. We've since implemented the use of the XCATs with much success. I highly recommend these units to investigative teams who are in search of a presumptive testing system that is very user friendly, durable and most importantly accurate!"
Captain Gerald Savoy
Bureau of Investigation
Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office
"We are a very small agency in Indiana. We use our XCAT primarily to detect METH. We have nothing but good things to say about the system. With the red light/green light function, the XCAT is a step up in field testing. Our prosecutor also likes the system."

"I just thought you would like to know that the unit (XPAK) that we returned for
service has been in daily operation (at least 5-days a week) since it was
purchased in 2009. Remarkable reliability if you ask me."
Brett E. Higginbotham
"Thanks for the great product (XPAK). It gets used and abused here daily and I've yet to have a problem with it."
