Agilent Technologies

Agilent Technologies Raman spectroscopy develops systems for through-barrier detection, identification and chemical analysis. For detection of unknown materials and for ID verification, Agilent’s systems use spatially offset Raman spectroscopy (SORS) to analyse objects when the contents are behind non-transparent layers or opaque container materials. With this advanced technology, Agilent products are deployed for liquid explosive detection at airport security, and for detection of explosives, narcotics and hazardous materials in EOD, Counter-IED and HazMat operations.

Providing a unique new capability in handheld detection, the Agilent Resolve Raman system enables rapid detection and identification of explosives, narcotics and hazardous materials through sealed, opaque containers. The system detects and identifies materials from comprehensive libraries, with SORS technology enabling positive identification through a wide range of sealed non-metallic containers, barriers, and packaging. Resolve’s through-barrier capability removes the need to open containers – hazards remain contained & evidence is preserved – enabling response teams to identify container contents early in an operation, prior to escalation. Find out more and request a Resolve system demonstration at
