Safariland's Lightning Powder is now available in a convenient aerosol spray. Lightning Spray Aerosol Fingerprint Powder from Forensics Source provides a controlled, consistent application of powder to the suspected print area. There is less waste than the traditional method of using powder and brushes. The spray powder can also be applied to a wide variety of surfaces, including vertical and overhead areas where conventional dusting methods do not work. It is also the cleanest way to apply powder when used in conjunction with Lightning Spray’s proprietary disposable spray tents that limit powder residue to a confined area. Lightning Spray Aerosol Fingerprint Powder is available in convenient two-ounce cans that contain up to 300 sprays.
Forensics Source is proud to partner with ARRO Forensics in bringing innovative new technologies in latent print processing and investigative processing to the forensics market: nano-engineered powders and suspensions.
Lightning Powder with Supranano Particles are specially formulated to develop latent marks on both non-porous (e.g. glass, ceramics) and semi-porous surfaces (e.g. plastics, nonferrous metals). These nano-particle enhanced powders provide 30 percent enhanced definition and clarity over existing powders, and prints can be developed up to 28 days after deposition. Lightning PowderSuspensions with Supranano Particles are a viable alternative to cyanoacrylate (CNA) development and are specially formulated to develop latent prints and footwear marks.
In the near future, it will be possible to analyze prints to quickly identify a variety of contact residuals (e.g. drugs, explosives) and bio-markers for demographic criteria including age, gender and ethnicity. These capabilities will be instrumental in addressing the investigative needs of crime scene units, homeland security and counter-terrorism agencies.
Lightning Powder with Supranano Particles is available now through www.ForensicsSource.com in black, white, red, yellow, and green, and comes in 30 ml, 60 ml, and 250 ml sizes. The powders and suspensions retail between $8.50 and $22.75 depending on the volume purchased.
