Explosives K9 Training Aid
Odor Prints are a training aid for explosive detection K9s they allow the dog handler to have access to real explosive odors that are not an explosive hazard. No licenses or special storage is required. Odor Prints have been designed to be inexpensive and long lasting making them convenient for training.
Odor Prints are designed with the filter medium sealed in between aluminum discs with no adhesives are used in the process and assembly is performed with gloved hands in a clean environment. This prevents contamination with other target odors and human odors from handling.
As for longevity of the odor a recent laboratory test showed that only the target odor was present on a four-month-old Odor Print that had been handled extensively. The Odor Print had been used and training, handled by multiple people and stored in a vehicle to simulate real life exposures.
Storage of the Odor Print is in a metallized Mylar resealable envelope that minimizes the headspace volume and prevents permeation through the envelope. This further extends the shelf life of the Odor Print and prevents contamination
