GT-200 Device

Fourth, the use of the GT-200 device which detects bomb residue and/or other material used in explosive devices has come under suspicion recently on the accuracy of such a device particularly as it may produce a number of false positives (ie indicate the presence of a bomb or bomb residue) and vice versa – see the Bangkok Post here and here. There are a number of other sites which have criticized the reliability of such devices although BP is not enough of a technical expert to know the reliability of criticism so venture on your own and keep an open mind.

Supalak Ganjanakhundee in The Nation has an interesting article today on the GT-200 device asking that the equipment be retested to make sure it works.
