Press Release - Partnership with US Testing Equipment Announced

GreyScan Australia Pty Ltd, Melbourne Australia is pleased to announce a new commercial partnership with US Testing Equipment Ltd, Vancouver, WA, USA.

Created in 2015, GreyScan is an innovative, Australian technology company, leading a revolution in measurement devices for chemical analysis applications in markets such as defence and security, disease diagnostics and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Taking the capability of laboratory capillary zone electrophoresis instruments to the field with simple to use, and portable desktop devices that facilitate fast decision making at point-of-need.

GreyScan first launched the ground-breaking ETD-100 in March 2020, offering the world’s first field deployable device capable of detecting Nitrate, Chlorate and Perchlorate explosives compositions at trace levels from surfaces. These Inorganic explosive traces, previously undetectable by traditional trace detection methods, are found in over 85% terrorist incidences where Home Made Explosives (HME) are utilised. The ETD-100 brings detection probability to the next level by seamlessly integrating inorganic detection capability alongside traditional organic explosives trace detection, empowering front-line workers with a capability deployable in any check-point or within any screening scenario.

James Bryant, GreyScan Commercial Development Director says “GreyScan is actively growing its partner network across the globe to introduce new technologies to the worldwide security market and address gaps in the detection spectrum, currently not detected by conventional IMS based ETD instruments. We are very pleased to be able to include US Testing Equipment as one of our key business partners in North America and look forward to working with their team, sharing our resources, talent and knowledge in the explosive detection industry to address key issues and requirements coming from present and future security needs.”
