Innovations carry Stillwater’s XploSafe beyond explosive detectionPublished: Tuesday, July 31, 2018 By: Jim Stafford Source: NewsOK
A sample mixer rotates slowly in a tiny laboratory at Stillwater's XploSafe LLC, turning small vials filled with novel materials that are part of ongoing research and development. It's the latest iteration of some amazing Oklahoma innovation.
Launched less than a decade ago as a concept to provide explosive detection technology for homeland security and military applications, the company markets 14 critical safety products worldwide.
Users include police departments, fire departments, first responders, bomb squads, pharmaceutical manufacturing personnel, industry safety personnel, chemical manufacturers, hospitals and the military.
Supported by multiple state and federal research grants and contracts, XploSafe recently expanded its research and development focus to include environmental monitoring and wastewater remediation.
