908 Devices Advances MX908 Handheld Device Capabilities

Updates include new capabilities for iOS devices and expanded drug target list BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–908 Devices Inc. (Nasdaq: MASS), a pioneer of purpose-built handheld and desktop mass spec devices for chemical and biomolecular analysis, today announced updates to its MX908 handheld mass spec device, adding new capabilities to streamline workflows and improve field safety for first responders. The device will now include enhanced Bluetooth features with remote applications for iPhone mobile devices, as well as a broader range of drugs, including fentanyl analogs and synthetic opioids and cannabinoids. According to an issue brief from the American Medical Association, the opioid epidemic is now largely driven by fentanyl, methamphetamine and cocaine, often in combination or in adulterated forms. Additionally, a recent study by the U.S. National Institute on Drug Abuse cited law enforcement seizures of illicit pills containing fentanyl nearly doubled from 2018 to 2021, indicating a need for tools such as the MX908, which quickly detects and identifies trace levels of chemicals and drugs. New Remote Application for iOS Devices Enhancements to MX908 will address gaps in responders’ workflows and speed chemical detection at the point-of-need for multiple missions. Through the MX908 Remote application for iOS, responders will be able to more efficiently share results, access technical support and customize notes in reports. In-app resources also include access to user documentation and training videos, equipping first responders with the resources they need while in the field. A remote application for Android device users was released last year. Expanded Targets: Robust Library for Identifying Trace Levels of Drugs and Chemicals Further, the handheld device can now detect and identify a broader range of drugs and drug precursors. New targets include a fentanyl analog (Valerylfentanyl), a synthetic cannabinoid (MDMB_CHMINACA), and a stimulant precursor (PMK Glycidate). These additions to the MX908 target list are…
