CDI 1M Mobile Field Lab

CDI 1M combines the quality of a benchtop Raman spectrometer with ruggedness, portability, and autonomy needed for field work.

CDI 1M is specially built with the law-enforcement use in mind. It can quickly identify unknown substances like narcotics, prescription drugs, explosives, poisonous, etc. CDI 1M is equipped with a battery for 10-hours autonomous use and enclosed in a protective case capable of surviving even the harshest environments.

CDI 1M is based on Raman spectroscopy, optical spectroscopy method that exploits scattering of light. This method is based on a property of molecules to scatter laser light inelastically. Frequencies of inelastically scattered light bare “fingerprints” unique to compound’s molecules. Thus allowing to identify compound itself.

This exclusive to Coda Devices technology is based on coded multi-slits aperture (US Patent No. 7,301,625,7,505,130). It can significantly improve the sensitivity of a spectrometer and at the same time reduce production and final costs.

CDI 1M mobile system is designed especially for law enforcement agencies and special services, for use in outdoors and field conditions. It allows identifying solid, liquid, gel and powder substances.
