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 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.”
