Forensic Light Sources

CrimeScope CS-16-400

The CS-16-400 is as bright as the xenon 500W, containing 22 Wavelengths covering the UV – VIS – IR, it utilizes a 400W Metal Halide source providing exceptional power and reliability. This unit is ideal for departments looking for a lab based forensic light source for regular to continuous use.

CrimeScope CS-16-500

The CS-16-500 was designed for those departments that prefer Xenon 500W lamps to Metal Halide Lamps because of the extra Infrared output for forged documents. Small enough to be taken to the crime scene but versatile enough to fit comfortably in the lab, the CS-16-500 covers the UV – VIS and is available with optional IR. The life time of the lamp is the same as for the Metal Halide 400W lamps i.e. 1500 hours.




Mini CrimeScope 400W

Mini-Crimescope-400W is the most powerful light source in the CrimeScope series and it produces light intensity unmatched by any other forensic light source on the market. Its 400W arc lamp provides intense uniform illumination and easy bulb replacement. The Mini-CrimeScope 400 is the only 400W light source with 1500+ bulb lifetime. No other 400W bulb has the same rating from the bulb manufacturer. This long lifetime 400W bulb is EXCLUSIVELY available from SPEX Forensics.


HandScope® Halogen HS-100

The introduction of this battery or AC powered unit allowed many department’s to obtain their first forensic light source. A true forensic light source was now within reach by small Police Dept’s or Crime Scene units. The unit is configured with a unique set-up with 10 Filters spread over two 6-positions wheels which allow the output of 11 primary wavelengths and 9 more. As with all SPEX Forensic Light Sources, One hand operation to hold the unit and change wavelengths.



RUVIS Applications 


SceneScope RUVIS (Reflected Ultra-Violet Imaging System) .

For 6 years the SceneScope has been the cutting edge of latent fingerprint detection technology. The SceneScope imager uses intensified UV reflectance instead of fluorescence as in Forensic Light Sources. The System can detect fingerprints on most non-porous surfaces prior to any treatment or after a cyanoacrylate (Superglue) fuming. Fuming is required when preliminary examination yields no results.
