Trace Eye-D, a Bradenton, Florida-based developer and manufacturer of public safety products, recently launched its innovative line of color changing chemical-based detection wipes at the Florida Sheriffs Association Conference in Orlando. Founded in 2017 in response to the wave of terror attacks occurring at that time around the world involving homemade explosives, the company has remained focused on its core mission to create simple and user-friendly solutions for military and law enforcement. Their line of easy-to-use disposable wipes can instantly confirm the presence of dangerous substances such explosives and opioids like fentanyl which are routinely encountered by law enforcement and other first responders.
In 2020, the company began adapting its patented system to detecting other substances of interest besides explosives and followed existing chemistry standards accepted by the courts for its unique approach to drugs and narcotics detection including fentanyl. “The need and demand clearly exist for our products. There are news stories almost daily about the scourge of fentanyl in our communities and we are excited and proud to bring our game-changing solution to the marketplace and to the people who need it”, said Chris Baden, CEO and co-founder of Trace Eye-D. Baden went on to say that Trace Eye-D’s journey would not have been possible without the partnership and support he had from his late father, Ray Baden, a notable Manatee County community leader and business entrepreneur. “It’s sad that he wasn’t here to see the company we started together reach its goals, but I think somehow he knows we’re making it happen”.
Trace Eye-D’s founding mission was to develop counter-terrorism products that would give security personnel an ability to quickly and easily identify homemade explosives of the type used by the shoe-bomber and in other high profile terror attacks. Their research has continued to create new value and expansion of its intellectual property portfolio. They have successfully applied for and have been allowed 3 US Patents to date with protections extending to 32 other foreign countries. “We’re looking forward to 2023 when we expect to make our products available outside of law enforcement use. The schools, places of work and the home environment are all settings we see our wipes making a positive impact at reducing harm and use of drugs and narcotics”.
