A-PRO-3131-CN.jpg

Click for More Info and Larger Image

Introducing the most advanced design in butane-powered portable hand held heating appliances with features never before seen. Fuming cartridge is designed to remain attached to the Fume-A-Wand™ for as long as the unit is in use. The unique cartridge design allows the expanded pellet to be removed and a new pellet added quickly. A flameless catalytic heat source heats the CN pellet to generate polymerized ”super glue” fumes. Built-in stand allows hands-free operation in many situations, including inside a fuming chamber where it will generate sufficient heat to develop a latent print in as little as 30 seconds. A safety feature of the starting trigger minimizes accidental ignition and the unit is equipped with auto-ignition and variable temperature control. For use at outdoor crime scenes to ”lift” a print from most non-porous materials and from a deceased body. It can also be used in the laboratory to speed up latent print development in a ”cyano” fuming chamber.

Cyanoacrylate is used in the fuming process to develop latent prints. This technique is particularly useful with textured or other difficult surfaces and is helpful in processing large areas such as the interior of vehicles or rooms of a house. A small amount of cyanoacrylate applied to the accelerant causes rapid fuming of the cyanoacrylate. Thin viscosity for superior print recovery. > More

The Cyanowand is a self igniting, butane powered heat tool. It is non-electric and is used as a flameless heat tool with variable temperature control. It is easy to use, completely portable. A hand held heat generator utilizes disposable cartridges using a cyanoacrylate monomer to emit cyanoacrylate vapor for fuming latent prints. The Cyanowand is designed for use at outdoor crime scenes, processing stolen vehicles, and in well ventilated indoor areas. Simply attach a cyanoacrylate cartridge, ignite and begin fuming. Hold the Cyanowand several inches away from the suspect surface and sweep the wand back and forth. Latent prints develop as they’re fumed.

A-CNP-2.jpg

Click for More Info and Larger Image

CN is photo-luminescent cyanoacrylate. This CN dye blend is specific to print residue. Developed prints can be observed almost immediately in many cases, with a fume time of only 5 minutes. CN is cured into a proprietary, steel wool cartridge with an indefinite shelf life. It is dispersed using a butane torch with a flameless burner for easy use in field or lab. The amount of CN in each cartridge is pre-measured, reducing the risk of over development. CN developed prints are visualized with a wide spectrum, UV to 515nm, but are optimized at 450nm. The highly luminescent, stable prints can often be seen from 12 to 20’ away. > More

Humidity is often used to enhance and accelerate latent print development. The addition of humidity in the processing of Ninhydrin treated documents is common place and it’s also a key component in Cyanoacrylate fuming techniques. This humidifier provides a controlled method of introducing moisture to both of these processes. The Humidifier can be used in conjunction with Cyano Fuming Chambers and also for humidifying documents processed with Ninhydrin by using the included hose nozzle attachment. This humidifier has the added advantage of containing a germicidal bulb which prevents bacteria and other contaminants from being introduced to evidence. The humidifier includes 1 Replacement Mineral Absorption Pad and 500mL Deionized Water. > More

The CApture Portable Fuming System quickly fixes latent fingerprints at the crime scene using microburst or traditional CA fuming methods, while protecting the user from hazardous fumes. Its patented* design combines all the components needed in one compact system: a heater to heat the Super Glue†; a shatter-resistant, clear protective chamber to contain the fumes as they react with the latent prints; an exhaust blower; and particulate/carbon exhaust filter. No ducting is required. Since prints may be easily developed at the scene, irrelevant evidence may be ruled out thus saving valuable laboratory processing time and storage space.

The Cyanoacrylate Fuming Method is a well-tried and tested means of developing latent fingerprints. It has proved its worth countless times as an effective tool for professional investigators. However, one of the drawbacks with the ‘super glue method’ is that the final image obtained is not always easy to photograph. Since the chemical deposits left after reaction are white, there may not be sufficient contrast for an effective photograph to be taken if the surface they are on also happens to be white. To overcome this, forensic scientists employ dusting or dye staining using different colors. Currently, a process requiring two distinct technical phases is employed: first the glue fumes reveal the print, then colorants (via sprinkling or bathing or the like) or powders are applied to make the print stand out against its background. Such a process multiplies contamination risks which is costly in terms of product, equipment and the application of colorants and powders may not always be compatible with DNA-search and demands strict hygiene and a high level of security. In addition, this process has two major draw-backs: it can only reveal prints in reduced or enclosed spaces and it does not work for prints left on hard surfaces. Lumicyano™ is a fluorescent cyanoacrylate. Instead of using the classical superglue with colorants, Lumicyano™ is a superglue to which a new component has been added so as to obtain fluorescent fumes. Its chemical makeup emits a ”cyanoacrylate fluorescent fume” during the fuming process, clearly and sharply defining the latent fingerprint in yellow under UVa-light in the 315-400 nm and forensic light 425-530nm wavelength bands. Product is compatible and very sensitive with dyes/powders as well as ”Lumicyano™ + dyes/powders” gives better resolution than ”superglue + dyes/powders”. Furthermore it’s compatible with DNA analysis. If required, the fluorescence can be refreshed days later. Most importantly, Lumicyano™ saves time, money and effort in the investigative process. > More

This space saving, cost effective , cyanoacrylate fuming chamber is constructed of dent-resistant polypropylene and has a clear glass viewing window for monitoring latent print development. Glass can be easily cleaned with Arrowhead Cyano-Force Fuming Chamber Wipes. A Laboratory Fuming Chamber is an effective way to use cyanoacrylate fuming for latent print development on various surfaces. The Arrowhead Fume Extraction unit allows for safe purging of the cyanacrylate when the fuming cycle is complete. In the fuming chamber, vapors of cyanoacrylate combine with fingerprint residues and polymerize to form a hard, whitish deposit. Once developed, such prints may either be photographed without further treatment, may be enhanced by dusting with powders for subsequent lifting by tape or stained with dyes. The fume extractor is a self-contained cyanoacrylate filtration system that connects directly to the Laboratory Fuming Chambers via the inlet port. The noxious odors and fumes inside the chamber are drawn through a >99% efficient filtering system comprised of a HEPA Filter and an activated Filter.
