How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Homeland Security Teams up with Company for Fentanyl Sensors

The lethal synthetic opioid fentanyl is so potent that first responders have been hospitalized for exposure to the substance by just being near it.

That’s not to mention the countless deaths of opioid addicts who were unaware that their drugs were laced with fentanyl, which is far more potent than heroin.

Now Homeland Security has contracted with Salt Lake City-based Vaporsens, which is one of three companies nationwide creating a new technology to detect fentanyl, KUTV reports. 

Vaporsens scientist Jayc Johnson, who is developing a prototype, said a “sensor like this has never been developed.”

His prototype is a wearable device aimed at helping paramedics and law enforcement officials detect even trace amounts of fentanyl without having to come into physical contact with it.
