The XCAT uses detection cards with specially formulated optical detection inks and software to
identify characteristics unique to each individual or group of chemically related analytes.
Each analyte or group of analytes is detected with a dedicated card. The unit uniquely identifies
and analyzes each card (eg. Cocaine or GSR) for the presence of the target analytes, and returns
a red or green light signal to the user simply indicating “detection” or “no detection”. The
XCAT performs the optical analysis in a light-controlled setting, and therefore returns objective
results that are not based on external lighting conditions (e.g. sunlight or night) or an individual
user’s subjective interpretation and color-matching to a manufacturer’s printed color chart.
