Caron Forensic Fingerprint Development Chamber

Caron Forensic Fingerprint Development Chamber

Caron's Fingerprint Development Chambers have been designed to accelerate the DFO, Ninhydrin and other fingerprint development processes.  Fingerprints are detected at a faster rate, and with better clarity, by precisely controlling conditions of high temperature and high relative humidity.  Typical operating conditions are 100ºC for DFO and 80ºC/65% RH for Ninhydrin.

The chamber features rapid condition recovery after the chamber door is opened and closed.  The large viewing area offers easy observation of critical samples.  The chamber interior is made of seam-welded aluminum coated with high quality, corrosion resistant epoxy paint.

As with all Caron manufactured products, the 6105 series chambers are fully covered by our 12-month parts and labor warranty.
