FLIR IBAC 2 Bio-Threat Detection & Collection

The IBAC 2 is a fully automated bio-detection sensor that can support continual, 24/7, air monitoring or can be set to targeting sampling windows to align to hours of operation. It alarms in less than 60 seconds when a bio-threat is present. IBAC can be configured to support automated aerosol sampling either in conjunction with its’ triggered alarms or at a set frequency sampling time. In wide service throughout the world, IBAC 2 is used to collect and detect aerosolized agents for all four classes of biological threats (spore, viral, cellular, and protein toxins) with low false alarm.


Autonomous 24/7 operation with no consumables. Detection algorithms for indoor and outdoor use.


System triggers collector only when high-probability of bio-agent threat, greatly reducing consumables and number of samples to process.


Operates as part of a network configuration in "first tier" building protection system, or via battery for mobile detection capability.
