M18A3 Chemical Agent Detector Kit
The M18A3 kit should be used by chemical specialty personnel. This kit is capable of sampling for unknown NBC agents. If a chemical agent is suspected but cannot be detected with the kit, vapor samples can be collected in sampling tubes for transportation to a laboratory for identification.
In 2009, the State of California’s FIRESCOPE Standardized Equipment List (see page 21, Sections 1.2.9) listed the M18A3 as a required item for emergency and Hazmat first responders.
The principle uses of the kit are:
