Fingerprint Fuming Chamber Permits Safe Use of Toxic Vapors for 2nd and 3rd Level Print Detection

Air Science Logo

Fingerprint Fuming ChamberCyanoacrylate fuming chambers are an alternative to conventional dusting with fingerprint powder. Fuming chambers are designed to safely develop latent fingerprints using ethyl cyanoacrylate (CNA) vapor in a controlled environment. This process is safe and effective for applications where moisture and fuming time are critical variables.

Fuming Chamber Features

  • The tamper resistant compartment helps maintain the chain of custody.
  • A versatile system of hanging rods and shelves allows proper positioning of items of evidence in the chamber.
  • The programmed sequence establishes the proper fuming intensity and duration.
  • Once initiated, the fuming cycle is automatically controlled from beginning to end. This unattended process saves labor and expedites the results.
  • Fuming time, humidity and chamber fume evacuation can be adjusted if required to meet internal local criteria or specific lab safety rules.
  • The ductless filtration system requires no connection to an outside exhaust system.
  • Choose from benchtop, free-standing reach-in or double door reach-in cabinets.
