Showcasing Latest Advances to Provide US Law Enforcement Government 
Agencies with New Fentanyl Field Detection Device

Tucson, AZ. — September 30, 2022 — Lightsense Technology, a pioneer in developing multi-spectroscopic solutions to address significant problems in public health – from the opioid crisis to the pandemic, food safety, and quality assurance in various supply chains, today announced that they will demo their new DrugDetect-F1 device in public for the first time at the International Association of Chiefs of Police 2022 Conference in Dallas, Texas inside of Carahsoft Technology Corp., Booth #416, October 15-17.

The DrugDetect platform provides a solution that is easy to operate and offers great safety, efficiency, and sensitivity, at an inexpensive price point. This platform assists with the difficult opioid epidemic by providing a new tool for law enforcement to quickly and easily determine whether a specific threat is present, enabling them to perform their job more efficiently and safely.

“We are pleased to be working again with the experienced Carahsoft team to support Government departments and agencies with our illicit drug detection tools,” remarked Bruce Berkoff, CMO of Lightsense Technology. “The DrugDetect-F1 is the newest, most portable and cost-efficient spectroscopy device on the market, and we are thrilled to be unveiling it publicly at the Carahsoft Booth (#416) at the IACP show.”

The DrugDetect-F1 is uniquely designed to blend the best features of ease-of-use (point/scan and measure in a few seconds) with officer and community safety (highly sensitive even through transparent packaging), to enable law enforcement professionals to perform their duties safely and efficiently.
