Press & Fume Cyanoacrylate Latent Print Developer
This low-cost, disposable cyanoacrylate fuming device is specifically designed for developing latent prints within five minutes, either in the laboratory or at a crime scene.
The innovative design of the Press & Fume™ allows first responders to process evidence for latent prints at a crime scene. Prints developed using cyanoacrylate (superglue) are considered strong and permanent; therefore, after photographs are taken, the evidence can be transported to the lab without damage to the developed prints.
Press & Fume™ consists of a 4" L x 1.5" W x .75" H cardboard box with two prefilled, hermetically sealed glass ampoules containing cyanoacrylate and a high density cotton pad saturated with a catalyst and accelerant solution, then thoroughly dried.
Using Press & Fume™ to develop prints is a simple, two step procedure:
Step 1 - After placing the Press & Fume™ box in
the bottom of a fuming chamber or cardboard box, simply break the two
ampoules with the ampoule breaker supplied in each case of kits.
Developing prints with Press & Fume™ is easier and faster than other fuming techniques and virtually eliminates the possibility of damaging developed prints when evidence is transported back to the lab.
