FoxFury works with Forensic Tools (Pty) Ltd. to provide alternative forensic light sources for crime scenes internationally. Read how FoxFury is helping Forensic Tools Ltd. provide innovative forensic solutions for their customers.
"Having worked extensively with Alternate Forensic Light Sources on crime scenes and in crime laboratories for the past 20 years, along with developing and presenting training on the subject, I have a deep understanding of the unique needs when it comes to the utilization of forensic light sources.
I believe four requirements are essential to classify a superior quality light source; the power source, the light intensity, specific frequencies, and the quality of the filters.
For the last year, I have been using the CS Light Source from Foxfury with great success, one of the reasons being the long battery life with quick charge times, another being the fact that you can switch between specific frequencies in the shorter bandwidths.
The TacSwan filter system has become my favorite "go-to" because, having historically only used screw-on filter holders, I can now use the larger filters instead of goggles as a search tool. The other benefit is that the light's intensity is fantastic, considering that the light source has numerous frequencies and white light.
The CS light source is compactly designed to accommodate forensic kit sizing and space constraints. The light provides excellent quality results, most especially with fluorescent fingerprint powders. The multiple light frequency CS light allows our team to quickly and accurately identify visible clues like fibers and body fluids. In addition to crime scene use, our company has also changed our lab processing methodology to incorporate the CS light source and filters with our image capturing system, especially on larger evidence items.
Having used the CS Light Source from Foxfury, I have also redesigned our company's patented image capturing device Flarecam™ which incorporates a forensic light source, camera and filters into one device to accommodate the CS light source and CS filters.
In summary, a reliable forensic product, cost-effective, very versatile with the right balance between intensity output, frequency range quality of the product, and accessories, including the dual goggles and filters."
