The main tool for the device is a laser beam, which, after reflection from the surface of the substance under study, is subjected to spectral analysis. In case of danger, red light lights up, and if everything is fine, green. The degree of error is minimal – approximately 0.5 %. No less advantage of Insight100 is that it is adapted to almost all types of packaging.

The device is equipped with a base of memory of the results of the analysis, which is constantly updated during operation. Insight100 is currently testing at 65 airports around the world.
