This Mini Light Brush features a built in high intensity LED—(BLUE) light that illuminates any surface when developing latent fingerprints using fluorescent powders.
These fiberglass brushes are particularly useful for dusting in dark areas, such as under furniture, inside motor vehicles, poorly lighted corners, inside cabinets, etc.
The Forensic Examiner is the name of this new alternate light source used, in the lab, by human forensic examiners. The device makes use of two banks high-powered lights which greatly enhance the probability of locating body fluids, hair, fibers, bone fragments, and faint fingerprint ridge detail.
Brush n Burnish is a newly designed dusting brush that eliminates scratching the ridges on latent fingerprints. The brush is made from gray squirrel hair. The acrylic handle can also be used for removing air bubbles from the lifting tape by using its smooth surface in a manner similar to a squeegee.
Fingerprinting brushes made from blue squirrel hair are practically indestructible.
Oil Red O is a new chemical latent print developer that’s used for developing latent prints on paper products that are wet or have been wet. Other chemicals, such as Ninhydrin are not very effective under these conditions. Oil Red O is a lipid protein stain that does not depend on the presence of amino acids or salts and is for laboratory use only.
