Focused specifically on law enforcement applications, the TacticID‑N includes the largest available library of over 1,000 narcotics, pharmaceutical drugs, cutting agents and precursors. T‑Mode can identify low dose samples at trace level, including fentanyl, THC, synthetics and more. Regular library and software updates are also available.
TacticID-N is IP65 rated and MIL-STD-810G certified for drop testing.

Fast, Accurate IdentificationThe TacticID-N library includes over 1,000 narcotics, pharmaceutical drugs, cutting agents and precursors and follows the U.S. DEA scheduled narcotics and substances of abuse classification system. Different substances are abused around the world – what is being abused in Dubai is likely to be quite different than what is abused in Amsterdam. The library in TacticID-N is designed to provide a thorough collection of globally abused substances. B&W Tek also offers library updates for new and emerging narcotics substances to all end users.
Easy-To-Read ResultsTacticID-N provides color-coded result screens with no user interpretation. Controlled materials such as cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, synthetic cannabinoids and more clearly alert with a red warning screen providing immediate safety information. Pharmaceutical drugs of abuse such a oxycodone, Percocet, Adderall and similar drugs display a yellow warning screen indicator to caution the first responder. In addition, CAS number, chemical category and basic safety information is provided on screen.
Critical Component Mixture IDTacticID-N is able to identify components and threat level within a single mixed sample. Few unknowns found in the field are pure substances – the vast majority are mixtures. TacticID-N can identify threat substances even in a mixed sample, such as cocaine in inositol. The mixture result screen will default to the highest level threat within the sample – normally an inositol screen result would be green, but with amounts of cocaine detected, the screen will alarm with a red background.
Versatile Sampling Accessories
In addition to the TacPac™ adaptor, the included Point & Shoot adaptor an Vial Holder are versatile for many situations and sample types. The optional Right Angle adaptor is ideal for quick throughput sampling without disturbing the substance. A Polystyrene Validation cap is also included.
T-Mode for Low Dose Samples
The included TacPac™ adaptor allows for simple and accurate identification of low concentration narcotics and traditionally difficult Raman samples. The adaptor uses Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) – an advanced identification technique that provides global law enforcement users with a trace level identification solution. Ideal for heroin, fentanyl, synthetics, THC, low dose pharmaceuticals and more.
TOS Remote™ for Remote Tablet Operation
The optional TOS Remote™ accessory pairs with any TacticID-N unit and allows the user to remotely take scans from up to 100 feet (30 meters) away via a secured Wi-Fi connection. TOS Remote is ideal for potentially volatile sampling scenarios and also includes GPS mapping and photo capabilities. When used with the Right Angle Adaptor or Vial Holder accessory, users can take advantage of true hands-free scanning – a unique capability for TacticID systems.
CommandCenter™ Interconnected Analysis Network
CommandCenter™ is a revolutionary new material identification network that enables a centralized lab to wirelessly and securely update handheld TacticID-N Raman units directly in the field with new library items. The CommandCenter model utilizes a seamless partnership between the lab and the users out in the field. Not only can data be sent from the lab to the field, but unknowns scanned in the field can also be sent wirelessly back to the lab for analysis. CommandCenter allows a group to have complete control over updating of libraries with authentic lab samples that are scanned in the lab, and can be sent not just to one, but to a full network of fielded TacticID-N units, ensuring library uniformity.
