Kits for on-site detection and identification of drugs and explosives

The American company Mistral Security Inc. develops and manufactures products for the security and military market. It approached Igloo to design and engineer a new case for its portable field kit for the detection and identification of explosives and drugs. The principle requirements were to design and engineer a convenient and easy-to-use product that can be comfortably carried on the belt and operated with ease under extreme field conditions (in the dark and the rain, when under pressure), while keeping production costs to the minimum.

The solution

The case we designed is one part injected polypropylene with an integrated hinge; the other part, including a clip that conveniently attaches to the user’s belt, is made of acetal. Inside the case are three vials containing chemicals for detecting and identifying either explosives or drugs, and pads for collecting samples in the field. Several cases can be fastened together, allowing the user to carry them at once. The product is as compact as it is popular among police and security forces throughout the world.
