The rotating unit, called the rotor, has fixed holes drilled at an angle (to the vertical), visible inside the smooth silver rim. Sample tubes are placed in these slots and the motor is spun. As the centrifugal force is in the horizontal plane and the tubes are fixed at an angle, the particles have to travel only a little distance before they hit the wall of the tube and then slide down to the bottom. These angle rotors are very popular in the lab for routine use in DNA and Serology cases. Our electrostatic detection device (PHOTO BELOW) is a specialized piece of equipment commonly used in questioned document examination to reveal indentations or impressions in paper which may otherwise go unnoticed. It is a non-destructive technique (will not damage the evidence in question) thus allowing further tests to be carried out. It is a sensitive technique capable of detecting indentations on pages several layers below the top sheet, and many years after the indentations were created.

Forensic Equipment DNA Serology Ink Dating Forgery Arson Fire Investigation Analysis Handwriting Computer FraudOur Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS) (PHOTO ABOVE / VIDEO BELOW) is an analytical method that combines the features of gas-liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry to identify different substances within a test sample. Applications of GC-MS include drug detection, fire investigation, environmental analysis, explosives investigation, and identification of unknown samples. GC-MS can also be used in airport security to detect substances in luggage or on human beings.
Additionally, it can identify trace elements in materials that were previously thought to have disintegrated beyond identification. GC-MS has been widely heralded as a “gold standard” for forensic substance identification because it is used to perform a specific test. A specific test positively identifies the actual presence of a particular substance in a given sample. A non-specific test merely indicates that a substance falls into a category of substances.
The VSC2000 (PHOTO AND VIDEO BELOW) is an instrument designed to detect the different optical properties of document materials. Using varying frequencies of IR and UV light, different inks on a questioned document can be separated, allowing visualization of writing that has been modified or obliterated.Forensic Equipment DNA Serology Ink Dating Forgery Arson Fire Investigation Analysis Handwriting Computer Fraud

The actual sample dosage is performed with a disposable capillary pipette, which is precisely guided, thus ensuring that the chromatogram can be scanned automatically according to a programmed pattern. With more intensity and larger spot size Speckin Forensics HandScope® Xenon Forensic Light Source (PHOTO BELOW)  is the brightest battery powered FLS available.

The HandScope® Xenon is a new Forensic Light Source that combines the versatility of multiple wavelengths with the convenience of battery power. It features more intensity than other battery powered alternate light sources and a larger, more highly defined, focusable spot size. This allows Speckin Forensics unprecedented control of the output to maximize the detection of evidence.

Speckin Forensics uses the Handscope® Xenon Forensic Light Source in crime scene reconstruction, crime scene investigation, dna examination, blood spatter detection and fingerprint analysis.
