PathSensors unveils new high-speed mail screening solution for anthrax, biologicals
BALTIMORE Dec. 15, 2016 Baltimore bio tech firm, PathSensors, Inc., announced today the launch of its new Bioflash MailGuardtm mail security screening solution. The Bioflash MailGuardtm system provides a fast, highly accurate, easy to use and low cost threat detection solution for government and commercial mail room operations that need to screen mail and packages for potential threats such as anthrax. The system is now in use at a major commercial mail room screening facility thanks to PathSensor’s initial launch customer, a global document management company.
“Government agencies, document management companies, outsourced mail room screening operators and commercial mail room managers have all told us that they need a turn key bio threat detection solution that is highly accurate with virtually no false alarms; fast to detect threats and able to handle high volumes of mail and packages; easy to use, and, above all, with a much lower cost of ownership than alternative approaches,” commented Ted Olsen, CEO, PathSensors, Inc. “The Bioflash MailGuardtm is the first and only solution to meet all these requirements and the results – as demonstrated by a successful field launch earlier this year with a major commercial mail room operation – show that the Bioflash MailGuardtm is a true breakthrough technology.”
The BioFlash MailGuardtm System consists of an integrated biological testing unit, down flow booth, mail jogger, and compact medical refrigerator and requires standard 110v power to operate. The biological testing unit has the ability to connect to the Internet via an optional tethered laptop computer, which permits remote system diagnostics and secondary testing confirmation as needed. It can detect over 25 biological threats in concentrations as low as 100 CFU in less than five minutes. The Bioflash MailGuardtm uses PathSensor’s CANARY® technology, which is currently deployed by Defense and Homeland Security customers, and which can be Integrated with x-ray, chemical and other threat detection technologies.
