$244.55
Tests for the widest possible range of explosive types due to its ability to detect improvised chlorate and peroxide-based explosives. Peroxide-based explosives are powerful substances that can be prepared from several over-the-counter materials and is currently in use by terrorist groups. This explosive is commonly known by its abbreviation TATP (tri acetone tri peroxide). This kit is based on the same reagents as the Expray™ kit. However the Drop-Ex Plus reagents come in dropper bottles for ease of use in field and laboratory investigation. The initial sample can be tested using Drop-Ex 1, 2, and 3. The test for chlorates, broides, and peroxide-based explosives must be a separate test using Drop-Ex A and B.

Drop-Ex #1 for Group A

Drop-Ex #2 for Group B
