Foster + Freeman have launched the Crime-liteXL which enables CSI professionals to gather evidence from crime scenes using the high intensity light sources.
Blood, body fluids, drugs, fibres, explosive residues and stained fingerprints can all be detected using the different light sources from the Crime-liteXL, which can be ready to use at crime scenes in seconds. It can also be used in the forensic laboratory.
The new Crime-liteXL range has 96 high intensity LEDs and offers exceptional levels of narrow bandwidth illumination, capable of revealing the minutest traces of evidence.
Unlike many other light sources, the Crime-liteXL has been engineered to provide narrow angle and shadow free light beams without "hotspots" that will enhance the crime scene investigator’s ability to detect evidence.
The range offers blue, blue-green, green and orange wavelengths with 10 percent intensity bandwidths of 40 to 70nm.
The new range comes with the provision of additional clip-on ‘trimming filters’ that further reduce output bandwidths to 10nm. These enhance the visibility of evidence by reducing or eliminating interference from background fluorescence.
The Crime-liteXL is constructed of anodized aluminium for strength and durability and is mains as well as battery powered.
The range offers levels of illumination and ease of use that will almost certainly increase the detection of evidence.
It is available individually or as cased sets which include anti-glare fluorescence viewing goggles, matching camera filters, AC mains power adaptor and other essential accessories.
The Crime-liteXL range has been classified to the latest safety standard IEC62471:2008.
