Spectronics Corporation, a renowned leader in ultraviolet light technology, produces state-of-the-art lamps and kits to aid law enforcement personnel and forensic technicians in solving criminal investigations worldwide.

One such product is the Spectroline® OFK-8000A OPTIMAX™ Multi-Lite™ LED Forensic Inspection Kit. It features a cordless, rechargeable flashlight with eight Quik-Connect™ interchangeable LED heads, the first of its kind. Each head has an internal dome lens that ensures optimum light uniformity. It offers the greatest versatility in crime-scene investigation and the gathering of potential evidence, and it’s especially effective for forensic photography.

The eight LED lamp heads provide single-wave illumination in UV-A, violet, blue, green, cyan, amber, red and white light. The built-in internal dome lens eliminates the need for an additional diffusing filter attachment.

The OFK-8000A kit enhances the detection, inspection and photography of biological stains and latent fingerprints, untreated blood, bodily fluids and processed blood samples, bruises/bite marks/pattern wounds, hair and fibers, grease, oil and other petroleum-based stains, and questionable documents.

The lightweight flashlight (only 15 oz) has a rugged, corrosion-resistant aluminum body that allows it to stand up to heavy use in the field or laboratory. Powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery, it provides 90 minutes of continuous inspection between charges. Its Electronic Intensity Stabilizer ensures consistent performance; the flashlight’s output will not weaken between charges.

Also included in the kit are three snap-on contrast filters (yellow, orange and red), smart AC and DC chargers and four pairs of spectacles, all conveniently packed in a padded carrying case.
