Safedevelop DFO and Ninhydrin Fingerprint Development Chamber

Safedevelop fingerprint development chamber

Safedevelop™ Fingerprint Development Chambers are designed to accelerate the processing of latent finger-prints on porous surfaces using DFO, Ninhydrin, and other development chemicals within a controlled environment for optimum effectiveness where moisture, temperature, and time are critical factors.

The Safedevelop Fingerprint Development Chamber controls all functions from start-to-finish, permitting the investigator to initiate an unattended cycle, establish the proper development intensity and duration, and to return upon completion to collect results. The resulting prints will fluoresce with the use of various lasers and light sources.

Safedevelop Fingerprint Development Chamber brochureSafedevelop Features & Benefits

  • The professionally designed automatic development chamber eliminates reliance on do-it-yourself systems that lack user-safety allowances and controls needed for repeatable results. 
  • To change between profiles required only the press of a few buttons on an easy to use LED display.
  • The chamber features rapid condition recovery following a door opening. 
  • The wide temperature and humidity range allows fingerprints to be processed in a matter of minutes - not days like some conventional methods. 
  • The steam generator produces humidity by a sealed, automatic, steam injection system, ensuring only vaporized water enters the sample chamber to eliminate the possibility of contaminating samples with water droplets.
  • The chamber's generous working area and flexible shelving and rod system enable large batches of operational material to be processed quickly and easily. 



Safedevelop Technology:

DFO and Ninhydrin fuming are the most effective techniques for detecting latent prints on paper and similar porous surfaces. Safedevelop performs well with DFO and Ninhydrin, however is not limited in scope and can also utilize other chemical developers, allowing illumination with various lasers and light sources to make the resulting prints fluoresce.
