National Urban Security Technology Laboratory (NUSTL) BioFlash-E OpEx Report


The National Urban Security Technology Laboratory (NUSTL) conducted an Operational Experimentation (OpEx) of BioFlash-E on July 30, 2015, at a New York City Police Department’s facility at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn, New York. First responder evaluators from law enforcement and fire departments in New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts took part in this event.

BioFlash-E, produced by PathSensors Incorporated, collects, and analyzes atmospheric aerosol samples for a suite of biological pathogens. PathSensors indicates BioFlash-E is currently used for biological agent monitoring at fixed locations, and it offers the BioFlash-E in configurations that can be transported, set up, and operated by a single person.
