Use & Benefits

The Universal Imaging System is built around the SceneScope RUVIS UHD camera. The system is designed primarily for fingerprint and palmprint detection, enhancement, and comparison throughout the Full Spectrum. The system comes complete with a 29MP Ultra High Definition CCD Camera, computer, forensic light source and an Image Enhancement/Comparison Software Suite, featuring new powerful tools for the capture, tracking of enhancements, compressed and encrypted storage, minutiae extraction, and side by side comparison and charting

Full Spectrum imaging capability in the Shortwave UV (RUVIS), Longwave UV, Visible, and Infrared.

The Color images below were NOT captured with the Universal Imaging System. They were captured with a generic digital camera and are provided to illustrate what would be seen with the human eye. All of the Black and White fingerprint images were captured with the Universal Imaging System using the included capture software and "Zoomed In" using the included ImaQuest Fingerprint Enhancement Software.

Includes both Optical and Digital Enhancement with High Resolution, High Dynamic range image capture.

Includes ImaQuest

ImaQuest is an enhancement and comparison suite that allows the removal of fluorescent backgrounds, removes periodic backgrounds with FFT, and features a broad range of digital filters to process the prints. ImaQuest tracks all changes made to the image automatically, and features a unique format which records the original image and all mathematical treatments applied to the image, encrypts the information, and then restricts access through multiple user accounts and passwords.

IdentQuest is part of ImaQuest

IdentQuest is the digital comparator component of ImaQuest. It features automated extraction, as well as manual edition of minutiae points. Load, scan, or acquire any two prints and they can be viewed side by side. Choose either automated comparison, or do it manually. Once compared and marked, the pair can be transferred to a built-in document creator. Templates for individual departments can be created, saved, and reused. Work can be saved as images for use in presentations. Printouts for court or case jackets can be printed on any installed printer.

The Universal Imaging System is a complete system for the detection, optical enhancement, capture, digital enhancement, and output of fingerprint and palmprint images, as well as images of other types of evidence. UIS includes the computer hardware, 16MP Ultra High Resolution, Full Frame CCD camera, filters and lenses for optical enhancements, SPEX Forensics FOCUS FLS, and the ImaQuest software suite for digital enhancements.

Included Filter Set to allow visualization from 254nm to 1000nm.




All SceneScope RUVIS UHD Systems include eye and skin protection devices against UV radiations. All RUVIS devices include lamps that emit high-intensity shortwave ultraviolet. Exposure to these wavelengths of radiation even reflected or diffuse, can result in serious, and sometimes irreversible, eye and skin injuries. Never aim the shortwave UV lamp at anyone. Never look directly into the shortwave UV lamp. Always wear appropriate eye and skin protection when using any RUVIS device.

The system is manufactured under ISO 9001 standards.

As with any alternate light source, always wear eye and skin protection. Please illuminate responsibly.

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.
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.
Questioned Documents
Questioned Documents
The main application regarding Questioned documents and the use of alternate light sources revolve around “ink differentiation”. Many inks have different formulations, even within the same apparent color type. A tunable forensic light source can be used to identify slight variations in ink type by viewing ink responses as the color of the light is tuned through the visible and infrared regions.
