Prime Alert®
Bio-Detection
System

Suspicious powders could be a real danger or a costly hoax. The Prime Alert® Bio-Detection System lets you quickly and accurately verify the validity of a threat. It provides a general screening for all CDC-identified bacterial agents of concern, including, but not limited to:

Prime Alert® also screens for ricin, botulinum and SEB.

If the threat is real, your personnel will know to safely evacuate sooner than if you were to test with an alternative solution. When a threat is not genuine, Prime Alert® helps limit disruptions, and lets you avoid performing unnecessary and costly additional testing. Comprehensive training materials are included.

The History of PrimeAlert ®
“Following the 9/11 attack in 2001, the country was plagued by recurring acts of domestic terrorism in the form of anthrax placed within covert letters sent throughout the USPS mail system to private citizens and politicians. In turn, thousands of hoax letters containing suspicious white powders were sent out with the sick intention of scaring people. State and local politicians here in Washington reached out to GenPrime and asked if we had any technology that could rapidly determine whether unknown powders were potential bioterrorist weapons or not. Prior to this, our team had expertise in microbiology, so we pivoted to address this national crisis. We quickly modified our technology to detect potentially dangerous levels of bioterrorist agents in unknown powders. In a few short months, we had developed the Prime Alert® Biodetection System. We sold the first units to the Spokane HazMat team and proceeded to supply more units to HazMat teams and municipalities throughout the U.S. By 2003, the United States Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) had recognized the value of Prime Alert® and we have worked closely with them ever since. Today, we work with government agencies across the world. Unfortunately, bioterrorism is here to stay, but fortunately so is Prime Alert®...” - Buck Somes, CEO
