Law enforcement officers’ work is becoming easier with the help of emerging technologies. Forensic laser systems are powerful lighting tools to help visualize forensic evidence. A new lineup of portable forensic blue laser systems was announced recently by FoxFury Lighting Solutions.
Three different models of laser systems are available (2W, 5W and 9W) for use with forensic evidence search and photography in the lab and field. They are designed to be cord-free, silent, and waterproof, and they come with a carrying case as well as laser goggles.
According to policemag.com, forensic lasers have traditionally been large, heavy, and corded tools that were impractical to use outside of the lab. They also have carried a large price tag.
Distributed by FoxFury, the NOAH PL Portable Blue Forensic Laser Systems, by comparison, are designed to be lightweight, cord-free, powerful, and affordable. All three laser systems emit 445 nm blue light, which enables evidence to be seen more easily and at greater distances than non-laser forensic light sources.
These PL laser systems can be used to search for as well as photograph blood, bite marks, bruising, bones, teeth, latent prints, gunshot residue, and serological evidence including semen, saliva, and urine, according to the company.
PL Blue laser systems are rechargeable, tripod mountable; they are impact resistant, waterproof, and can be decontaminated, according to the company.
