A control unit for the system

First mentioned: A Clear and Present Danger
Owned by: Building 26,
presumably others
Current status: Newer versions still in use

Various ability negation systems have been devised to drug evolved humans and prevent them from using their abilities.


The system was originally devised by Nathan's agents at Building 26. This original version consists of drugs and an intranasal administration apparatus that incapacitates evolved humans and prevents them from using their abilities. It is not known which kinds of drugs are delivered by the device. In addition, the system has a central control unit with a keypad, normally attached to the evo's chest.

After the revelation of evolved humans to the general public, the system became widespread out of necessity. The Los Angeles Police Department has access to a version of the device similar to Building 26's.

Renautas also has their own version of the device; theirs is more streamlined, consisting of a simple nasal plug that administers the drug and an internal battery. There is no central control unit.


A Clear and Present Danger

Evolved humans rigged with the system, including Claire, Peter, Hiro, Matt, Tracy, and Mohinder, are inspected by Nathan and Danko at an airplane hangar. The nasal tube is removed from Claire's nose and she is allowed to go, but she sneaks back into the plane.

Later, when she stows away on the transport plane, she removes the nasal tube from Peter, Hiro, Tracy, Matt and Mohinder.
