Types of

Blood Agents
- Hydrogen Cyanide (cyanide)
- Cyanogen Cholride (cyanide)
- Arsine
Note: CBR Table may be wrong. Wikipedia says all of these are liquids or solids at room temperature. This may be why the M256A1 kit is able to detect them (since M8 paper is only supposed to detect liquids).

Means of Detection

Blood Agent
M256A1 Kit
M8 Paper
Note: Wikipedia says the agents (Hydrogen Cyanide, Cyanogen choloride, and Arsine) are either solids or liquids at room temp. Which, might be the reason that M8 paper (that's what's in the M256A1 kit) is able to detect it; since M8 paper is supposed to only be able to detect liquids.
