You've seen Luminol on TV. Luminol is often used in the visualization of blood. It is highly sensitive and can usually locate faint blood that is invisible to the eye. One vial contains about 15 grams of powdered luminol that, when mixed with water, makes 8 ounces of luminol.
Most people should not use this variety of luminol. We have several varieties, each is suited for either detectives, students or novices. Details below.
How to Use: Inside a small spray bottle add a vial of Luminol to eight ounces of water and mix. When sprayed on surfaces where blood is evident, the luminol will make the blood patterns appear a bright green.
