Mini-CrimeScope Advance

The Next Generation of the the premiere crime scene forensic light source.

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. 

Extreme Reliability - Unmatched ease of use.

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.

Features
  • 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.

Detection of Body Fluids with an Alternate Light Source
Detection of Body Fluids with an Alternate Light Source
Since body fluids like semen, saliva, and vaginal fluids are naturally fluorescent, the use of a light source offers a unique method for locating them. A crime scene investigator can narrow down the specific locations of stains for collection instead of testing entire, large pieces of evidence such as a mattress, a carpet, a sheet, an article of clothing, etc. The dried body fluids will actually glow under the light source illumination.
Bruises, Bite Marks and Pattern Wounds
Bruises, Bite Marks and Pattern Wounds
On some individuals, a tunable or multiple wavelength forensic light source may reveal bruise and patterned wound details that are invisible under normal white light illumination.
Detection of Gun Shot and Explosive Residues
Detection of Gun Shot and Explosive Residues
There are several different types of residues found both in ammunition and explosives, which fluoresce. By using a tunable Forensic Light Source, observations can be made on items without touching the surface, to see if fluorescent residues are present.
Detection of Trace Evidence
Detection of Trace Evidence
Forensic and Alternate light sources are useful tools to detect both fluorescent and non-fluorescent trace evidence.
