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.”

Dahlgren Decon, manufactured by First Line Technology through an exclusive technology licensing agreement with the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD), is a three-part decontaminant solution that immediately decontaminates chemical and biological warfare agents, and now proven to be effective against both fentanyl and carfentanil.

A complete decontamination kit including FiberTect wipes, Dahlgren Decon solution and the Victory MG200 electrostatic sprayer can be purchased through Federal Resources, a resale partner of First Line Technology.

First Line Technology Responds to Fentanyl Epidemic with Neutralizing Dahlgren Decon Solution

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) June 12, 2017 – Today, First Line Technology received new data from one of the nation’s leading research institutes that confirms Dahlgren Decon is one of the most effective decontamination solutions for neutralizing the deadly effects of the hazardous opioid, fentanyl.

The data shows Dahlgren Decon yields a greater than 99% neutralization of fentanyl in less than five minutes. This comes at a crucial time when there is no sign of the opioid addiction and overdose crisis slowing down. In fact, earlier this month, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration issued a warning to the public and law enforcement nationwide about the health and safety risks of fentanyl.

Dahlgren Decon, manufactured by First Line Technology through an exclusive technology licensing agreement with the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD), is a three-part decontaminant solution that immediately decontaminates chemical and biological warfare agents, and now proven to be effective against fentanyl.

“The combination of reactivity, compatibility and stability makes Dahlgren Decon a true triple threat,” said Amit Kapoor, President of First Line Technology. “It is the only general purpose decontaminant that neutralizes a broad range of hazardous agents with a neutral ph and off-the-chart material compatibility.”

First Line Technology agrees that Narcan is an effective antidote for counteracting opiate overdose internally, but stresses that copious amounts of soap and water needed for external decontamination of skin and personal protective equipment (PPE) is not always readily available in situations when first responders have encountered these drugs.

“This new data proves that Dahlgren Decon is a game changer for first responder and law enforcement communities,” said Gary Sharp, Director of Training at Federal Resources. “No other solution on the market neutralizes fentanyl in such a short amount of time.”

First Line Technology sees Dahlgren Decon becoming a go-to product for all first responders and law enforcement officers who find themselves handling lethal evidence or helping overdose victims.

“Time is of the essence for these brave men and women,” said Kapoor. “Storing Dahlgren Decon in the trunk or passenger side of all responder vehicles would significantly reduce the risk of danger for those answering the call to help. Having an effective and proven decontamination tools is critical to our First Responders and receivers.”
