The NarCommand testing process is simple and straight-forward:
- The officer or agent uses the narcotics sampling pen to dip into or swab the sample, then inserts it into the spectrometer.
- The mobile device is used to capture an image of the resulting colors from the tip of the narcotics sampling pen.
- The mobile app software analyzes the image and finds a positive reference match within the reference library database of drug standards.
- The user receives notification of the identification result within seconds and an electronic record of the test result is automatically stored for further analysis to enhance drug intelligence collection capabilities.
