Building on the knowledge and expertise of nearly 20 years of Forensic Light Source design, the Mini-CrimeScope Advance incorporates the same ease of use and unmatched reliability of its predecessor along with the latest in arc lamp technology to provide a unit that is unsurpassed in performance. The Mini-CrimeScope Advance is the most versatile forensic light source, with choice of 8 or 15 wavelengths, all within a single handheld filter wheel mounted at the working end of the liquid light guide, providing even greater ease of use than the original Mini-CrimeScope. For Crime Scene and Lab Work Fingerprints (porous/non porous surfaces), body fluids, trace evidence, bite marks and bruises, shoeprints, gun shot residues, bone fragments, drugs.
Power The Mini-CrimeScope® Advance is the brightest bulb based forensic light source on the market. Utilizing new bulb technology, as well as new high throughput, high durability interference filters, it produces more light than the current Mini-CrimeScope 400. Intensity and power allow for better sensitivity; helping to find the faintest of evidence. The Mini-CrimeScope Advance is brighter than any handheld light source on the market, bar none! Indeed it is brighter than any portable forensic laser. Portability Lighter weight then all other forensic light sources in its class, the Mini-CrimeScope Advance is the brightest choice for all your crime scenes. Now you will finally be able to bring laboratory intensity into the field; the MCS-ADV is transported in a rigid, padded case that easily travels. The new case is also convertible into a backpack. The Mini-CrimeScope Advance is designed to travel. Ease of Use The MCS-ADV features a patented filter wheel at the working end of the liquid light guide. To switch a filter the user need only “flick a thumb” on the hand that is directing the light guide. No other manufacturer can make this claim. When using any alternate light source, 2 features are critical, light intensity and wavelength selection. The Mini-CrimeScope Advance provides very high light intensity in a round uniform spot that is easily controlled, allowing the user to maximize how much light falls onto the evidence. The more light on the evidence, the brighter the fluorescence. The Mini-CrimeScope provides multiple wavelengths and the easiest way to switch them. Multiple wavelengths are critical in rejecting background/fluorescence. The evidence you are looking for generally fluoresces while being excited at most wavelengths of the spectrum. When you have a background that also fluoresces the multiple wavelengths allows the user to select for the ideal wavelength to allow for rejection of the background, maximizing contrast. Upgrabeability To continue to be the top of the line forensic light source, the unit must be useful today and tomorrow. With this as the rule, the Mini-CrimeScope Advance was designed to be upgradeable. Additional filter wheels can be added any time.
