The LCD-FR (Lightweight Chemical Detector-First Responder) alarms to the presence of chemical warfare agents (CWA) and toxic industrial substances (TIC).

The LCD-FR is capable of detecting substances below IDLH concentrations. When a threat is detected, the LCD-FR will alarm, and immediately display details of agent type, concentration and dosage. Featuring an easy-to-read display the LCD-FR is simple to operate.

Smiths Detection has sold over 60,000 hand-held chemical detection instruments to the US and Allied militaries worldwide to date. Originally designed to military requirements, the LCD-FR sets the standard of next generation personal protection for First Responders.
