The EXACTO rounds were in the old Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier from few years back.

I wonder if that could be a useful survival tool for identifying flora and testing water potability.

QFT, for sure. Tongue

Or for the richer Wall Street clientele perhaps paired with an app that can determine purity and components of product.

Sure, make sense....well, assuming that thing can scan contents through a gel cap.
I'm thinking that for the mechanical process of sampling powder's a good fit, though acid, DMT, and X can come in tabs right?

I've never heard of party drugs coming in gel caps; they come as pills/tablets of compressed powder, typically stamped with a logo.

But that does raise the question of how effective the device would be at scanning compounds or layered structures like a chocolate-wrapped waffer stick.

A) I would really not be the person who'd know.

B) Aye, right. Foil's also very heat/light reflective.

Yup.  Sure made sniping easier in that game.

Another game that used something similar was the FR-27 S.F.R. (aka Combat Rifle) from Deus Ex: HR.  Link it up to an advanced HUD, and you could be shooting around corners like crazy.

I wonder if Bullet facing high intensity lights defeat the targeting?

I'm not sure how effective it is.  Speed, maybe?  Molly?  That stuff is such a toxic waste pit, who knows whats in it to begin with.  The scanner would scan and tell you "Yep.  This is some toxic shit." lol.  Though you could use it for Oxy and Barbs too.
