The revolution in latent fingerprint development. http://www.crimesciencetechnology.com/lumicyano-eng
Lumicyano allows, with a one-step process, the revelation of fluorescent fingerprints in standard fuming chambers. It removes the post-processing stage of dyeing or dusting with powder : fingerprints are fluorescent immediately.
For numerous forensic forces using Lumicyano throughout the world, this technology is highly time saving and allows an increased efficiency. Indeed, traditionally used latent prints development protocols (fuming + dyeing) need upto 48 hours and alter irremediably DNA. With Lumicyano, forensic experts can develop latent prints in less than 30 minutes, while maintaining DNA sampling possible thus allowing rapid double identifications (papillary then biological) on a single print.

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 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.
