Idaho Technology Obtains Army Approval for Extraction Kit
Posted: June 5, 2009
Idaho Technology Inc. (Salt Lake City) has received the support of the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command for use of the Platinum Path Extraction Kit with the Joint Biological Agent Identification and Diagnostic System.
Developed under the direction and cooperation of the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense - Chemical Biological Medical Systems Joint Project Management Office, the Platinum Path Extraction Kit will provide a significant cost savings across all service branches through the elimination of redundant sample preparation kits. The Platinum Path Extraction Kit reduces the annual extraction kit costs by 42% and represents an 80% reduction in the logistics footprint. Additionally, the Platinum Path kit reduces the training requirement by as much as 20%, while delivering increased operational effectiveness and suitability when compared to the currently fielded five extraction kits.
