Medical detection dogs or bio-detection dogs are trained to detect the smallest odours with concentrations, around one part per trillion and can detect medical conditions such as breast cancer, Prostate Cancer, Bowel Cancer, Malaria and Parkinson’s and most recently coronavirus.
The carousel has a modular arm system where arms can be changed to suit various training situations. This medical detection arm has been designed to fit the carousel and accept the smaller medical arm and sample pot.
This allows for removal from the main carousel for sterilising or exchange into a different position within the carousel, should you choose to lock the carousel into a static position (NATO versions only with locking kit).
There is a choice of three different types of guard plate styles, slotted plates, cross wires or inverted pepper pots. The choice is completely preferenced and they are all designed to allow the dog to get his nose as close to the sample as possible without him being able to lick the sample.
An optional focus cone is available which has been ergonomically designed to get the nose as close as possible to the sample and amplify the odour drawn from within the sample.
Baffle plates are an ideal extra for your carousel and will slow the search interrogation and help focus. They will also encourage the dog to use both nostrils as the head goes between the baffle plates.
