New Data Proves Dahlgren Decon Destroys and Neutralizes Over 99.9% Fentanyl HCL

WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 14, 2017 – Today, First Line Technology received new data from MRI Global, one of the nation’s leading research institutes, proving that Dahlgren Decontamination solution neutralizes over 99.9% of bulk fentanyl hydrochloride within five minutes.

Fentanyl hydrochloride, otherwise known as fentanyl HCL, is one of the most difficult types of fentanyl to decontaminate.

Other current decontaminants can only remove this type of fentanyl, not molecularly destroy. This doesn’t help protect First Responders. Dahlgren Decontaminant’s 99.9% efficacy is defined as true chemical destruction via molecular disassembly of the target threat. Dahlgren Decon is effective against all threats including fentanyl, fentanyl citrate and fentanyl hydrochloride.

“First Line Technology realizes the importance of considering what specific type of fentanyl is being addressed,” said Amit Kapoor, President of First Line Technology. “We aren’t just stopping with product research and development with today’s threats – we are looking at tomorrow’s threats for First Responders and our citizens to produce next generation solutions.”

First Line Technology works with scientific experts to conduct reproducible testing that undergoes quality controls and management reviews to produce reports with unbiased data. This produces test reports that can be used in peer reviewed publications that benefit the military and First responder communities.

“We highly encourage our customers to ask questions, get hands-on with our products and seek out unbiased evaluative data before making a purchase,” said Kapoor. “Understanding each threat presents a different decontamination requirement is essential to the health and safety of First Responders and, ultimately, eliminating this ongoing epidemic.”

First Line Technology’s Dahlgren Decon Neutralizes 100% Carfentanil in Under 5 Minutes

WASHINGTON, July 19, 2017 – Today, First Line Technology received new lab results confirming that Dahlgren Decon neutralizes 100% of carfentanil in under five minutes.

This comes on the heels of a similar announcement from First Line Technology when they publicized last month that Dahlgren Decon neutralizes 100% of fentanyl in under two minutes. Absolute efficacy under five minutes for some of the most potent synthetic opioids known to man makes Dahlgren Decon one of the most effective decontamination solutions available.

“The data is irrefutable. It comes down to the superior chemical composition of Dahlgren Decon,” said Dr. Christina Baxter, former Program Manager for the CBRNE subgroup at the Technical Support Working Group. “Dahlgren Decon uses peracetic acid, which is double the strength of any hydrogen peroxide solution. It also comes in solid form which allows users to mix it on-site so there is no degradation of concentration. You always know what you’re getting with Dahlgren Decon.”

The data shows Dahlgren Decon yields a greater than 99.9% neutralization of carfentanil in under two minutes and 100% neutralization of carfentanil in under five minutes.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled with these results, but our work is not done.” said Amit Kapoor, President of First Line Technology. “Dahlgren Decon needs to be in the hands of every first responder, law enforcement officer and hazmat crew worldwide.”
