Metrohm is a leading manufacturer and supplier of handheld material identification systems intended for the military, first responders and police.  Our Mira DS Raman system is a standoff detector that allows you to identify hundreds of explosives and hazardous materials from a safe distance – anywhere and within seconds.

Mira DS was developed in close cooperation with professional first responders. While providing ease of use and speed, Mira DS addresses the need for safety of drug task force officers, hazmat teams, and bomb technicians in particular.

Mira DS is barely larger than a smartphone, weighing just 700 grams, and meeting the specifications of MIL STD 810G. In addition, we can offer you many other methods and applications for quality control during the manufacturing process of military technology.

Metrohm’s Mira DS can identify hazardous materials, liquids, and powders at the push of a button. The Mira DS analyser takes the molecular fingerprint of the substance and matches it with stored profiles on the device. The instrument provides you reliable identification of the substance or mixture you have in front of you quickly.

In addition, you can assess the risks associated with the substance by interfacing the Mira DS with the proven HazMasterG3™ app. This app will give you vital information on the substance identified by the Mira DS analyser.
