Lumicyano™ – Solution and Powder

Lumicyano allows, with a one-step process, the revelation of fingerprints in standard fuming chambers. It removes the post-processing stage of dyeing or dusting with powder : fingerprints are fluorescent immediately.

The Lumicyano process requires the combined use of Lumicyano Powder and Lumicyano Solution.

Lumicyano has been especially designed to show fingerprints with a stronger brightness and to develop high level detailed fingerprints under optimal conditions. There is also a minimized risk to over glueing ; this provides better results than classical cyanoacrylate, post-treatment dyes or powders.

Lumicyano can be used instead of classical cyanoacrylate (superglue) in fingerprint development sequence. It is therefore fully compatible with post-treatments using dying agents (such as BY40 or rhodamine) and dactyloscopic powders.

In such a case, thanks to the structure and the quality of the Lumicyano polymerization, the overall results have a much better quality than results obtained using a classical cyanoacrylate to start the development sequence.

The Lumicyano technology is fully compatible with DNA analysis. It is therefore possible to perform a double identification (papillary then DNA identifications) on a single print. Such additional analysis is not possible with dactyloscopic powder or Basic Yellow 40/ Rhodamine post-treatment.

Dosage & Timings:

Dosage and timing depends on the nature and number of exhibits in the fuming chamber, and the volume to fumigate. Lumicyano minimizes the risk to overglue the latent marks.

The following recommended measures are an average to achieve the optimal results when considering average casework loads and police station equipment. The ideal concentration of the Lumicyano Powder into the Lumicyano Solution is about 5%. If you don’t have a scale that can weigh milligrams, you can dose the products as follow :

Lumicyano Powder : one full scoop (supplied) = 40 mg / Lumicyano Solution : 33 drops = 1 gram

The process is very sensitive with dyes or powders and is compatible with DNA analysis.
