PITTSBURGH, April 15, 2015 — ChemImage Sensor Systems (CISS™) announced the launch of their newest product the VeroVision™ Mail Screener, which utilizes real-time shortwave infrared imaging sensor technology to detect hidden illicit drug substances. The initial public demonstration of this product will be at the American Jail Association’s 34th Annual Conference & Jail Expo in Charlotte, NC, from April 19th -22nd , 2015. The capabilities of the product will be displayed at the CISS exhibit at booth # 229. Jeffrey Beckstead, PhD., Director of Product Development, will also be presenting the technology and its drug screening applications during the Exhibitor Showcase on Monday, April 20th at 1:00 pm.

The VeroVision Mail Screener scans articles of mail, and detects illicit drugs and common cutting agents.  The system features a simple, one-click user interface that allows the operator to scan mail within seconds and clearly confirm the existence of illicit drug substances. Using shortwave near-infrared light, the system can reveal what is invisible to the human eye. The system incorporates advanced acquisition and processing methods to detect illicit substances and presents the detections to the mail screener.

In addition to officially launching the product as a part of the expo, ChemImage Sensor Systems will host an exclusive hospitality event for after sessions on Monday, April 20, 2015 at the Westin Charlotte. Select guests are invited to the CISS Carnival for a fun-filled night of games, excitement, and other surprises to celebrate the launch of the VeroVision Mail Screener, which specializes in revealing the unseen.

“We are excited to host an exclusive event during the American Jail Association conference to celebrate the launch of the VeroVision Mail Screener. We expect more than one hundred guests to join us. In addition to providing a fun-filled night of games and other entertainment, our goal is to educate our guests about the many benefits of using our mail screening product while discussing the technology with key opinion leaders in the corrections industry,” states Marie Molnar Hammond, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development, ChemImage.
