The revolution in latent fingerprint development.

Lumicyano allows, with a one-step process, the revelation of fluorescent fingerprints in standard fuming chambers. It removes the post-processing stage of dyeing or dusting with powder : fingerprints fluorescent immediately.

  • Fume & Dye in one step in less than 30 minutes
  • Improved precision of fingerprints
  • DNA sampling compatible
  • Operates in all fuming chambers
  • Can be used directly at crime scene ​

For numerous forensic forces using Lumicyano throughout the world, this technology is highly time saving and allows an increased efficiency. Indeed, traditionally used latent prints development protocols (fumigation + dyeing) need up to 48 hours and alter irremediably DNA. With Lumicyano, forensic experts can develop latent prints in less than 30 minutes, while maintaining DNA sampling possible thus allowing rapid double identifications (papillary then biological) on a single print. One Lumicyano kit LK5-100 (including a 5 gm Lumicyano Powder bottle) allows: 37 cycles in a 650 liter (23 cub.ft) fuming chamber 125 cycles in a 170 liter (6 cub.ft) fuming chamber DOWNLOAD THE LUMICYANO USER GUIDE (PDF, 7MB)

IMPORTANT : In order to achieve satisfying results, key steps in the operating procedure must be strictly adhered : 1. Adequate quantity of Solution to fumigate depends on the volume of the cabinet 2. Dissolving the Powder into Solution @5% ratio 3. Humidity in the cabinet must be 80% when fumigation is starting 4. Temperature of hot plate must gradually reach 120°C/250°F. Do not preheat the plate. 5. Use the right forensic light source Follow strictly the procedure and you will develop latent mark with great results. Requires a fuming chamber that can reach the following specifications: Humidity : 80% Hot plate Temp : 250°F/120°C.

Technical note The Lumicyano process requires the combined use of Lumicyano Powder and Lumicyano Solution. Lumicyano has been especially designed to show fingerprints with a stronger brightness and to develop high level detailed fingerprints under optimal conditions. There is also a minimized risk to over glueing ; this provides better results than classical cyanoacrylate, post-treatment dyes or powders. Lumicyano can be used instead of classical cyanoacrylate in fingerprint development sequence. It is therefore fully compatible with post-treatments using dying agents (such as BY40 or rhodamine) and dactyloscopic powders. In such a case, thanks to the structure and the quality of the Lumicyano polymerization, the overall results have a much better quality than results obtained using a classical cyanoacrylate to start the development sequence. No returns can be accepted on Lumicyano. The recommended concentration of the Lumicyano powder in the Lumicyano solution is 5%. The use of the 5g of Lumicyano powder needs therefore 5 bottles of the Lumicyano Solution 20g. Ask us about the Lumicyano Preset on the CApture BT Fuming Chamber! First time user?
