Commercial Chemical Detection
MRIGlobal provides value to commercial chemical detection through our niche ability in synthesizing, handling, and testing exotic and highly-toxic materials.
If you need to bring commercial detection technologies to market, our team can help. We perform standard testing to get the approvals you need on a variety of materials, including highly toxic materials other labs lack qualifications to handle.
MRIGlobal commercial chemical detection capabilities include designing and performing tests, adding to onboard libraries of instrumentation, assisting with organizing the pathway toward approvals, and performing independent third party validation testing.
CBRNE Tech Index
A comprehensive database of detection equipment available to the public
Launched in 2014, the CTI displays a wide range of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) detection equipment and products for use in the field or laboratory. Users can view, compare, and filter products according to several categories. This enables users to make informed decisions on which products best meet their needs.
MRIGlobal scientists regularly test and evaluate equipment for government and industrial clients, providing expert and end-user feedback for product development and upgrades. The site contains over 2,000 products in the various CBRNE categories ranging from lab use to field use. Technologies represented range from easy-to-use colorimetric strips to state-of-the-art laboratory analytical equipment.
MRIGlobal can perform efficacy studies for a wide range of threat materials. Our ability to determine whether processes or products work as expected creates safer chemical detection.
MRIGlobal’s design of Ballistic Gas Chromatograph (BGC) has been awarded an R&D100 Award for Innovation by R&D Magazine. The BGC instrument utilizes dual collection, dual column, and dual detectors to allow the system to collect samples from one side of the instrument and analyze samples from the other side. This unique approach allows 30 second sample analysis time to be achieved.
MRIGlobal’s registered laboratories and staff are trained to handle chemical agents, NTAs, controlled substances, explosive materials, known carcinogens, and radioactive materials among other highly toxic and hazardous chemical and biological materials.
Operations in our labs comply with applicable federal, state and local requirements as well as those mandated by organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the US Department of Defense (DoD).
We perform library development and validation for field portable and handheld instrumentation for first responders, like HAZMAT teams and firefighters. We ensure they enter the field with devices that give accurate, reliable results in a short amount of time.
We provide consulting services for navigating chemical and biological challenges.
Our team is dedicated to the health and safety of our local, national, and international community.
With a shared dedication to solve our clients’ most challenging problems, the scientists, engineers, analytical chemists, and biologists at MRIGlobal approach projects as a team. Our shared common goal of keeping people safe drives the analytical services, method development, systems integration, data analyses, and staffing services we provide to multiple US government organizations. We’re known for chemical detection services offered with the highest integrity, creativity, and program management discipline.
