At a crime scene, an investigator must be equipped with the proper tools for fast, accurate analysis of potential evidence. Spectronics Corporation manufactures technologically-advanced, effective light sources that law enforcement personnel rely upon.  

The Spectroline®OFK-450A Blue Light LED Forensic Inspection Kit features the super-powerful, portable and rechargeable OPTIMAX™ 450 LED flashlight perfect for crime-scene investigation, gathering potential evidence and laboratory work.

The super-high intensity, 450 nm blue light LED lamp easily reveals bodily fluids, biological stains and

Versatile Ultrasonic Diagnostic Tool Hears Problems Before They Lead to Breakdowns in Aviation Systems

on Thu, 08/06/2015 - 14:07

Spectronics Corporation has its pulse on the latest and most advanced leak detection solutions, and the Spectroline®MDE-2000NC Marksman™II ultrasonic diagnostic tool is one such notable achievement.

When pressurized leaks and component wear and other defects are in their early stages, they create a friction only heard in the ultrasonic range. The Marksman II converts and amplifies inaudible ultrasonic sound into audible “natural” sound. This highly advanced tool allows the aircraft technician to “hear” even the smallest brake, vacuum, tire, and other pressurized leaks…before they lead to

Leak Detection Kit Finds Leaks Quickly and Accurately in Marine Craft

on Thu, 08/06/2015 - 13:39


Spectronics Corporation is the premier supplier of ultraviolet equipment and fluorescent dyes for over sixty years in such markets as industrial, automotive, biotechnology, laboratory, electronics and much more. Its most recent success story is in marine vessels, with the introduction of the innovative OPK-400M Marine Leak Detection Kit. This kit is specially designed to easily and efficiently locate fuel, oil and hydraulic leaks in small to medium sized marine craft. Packaged with two distinctly colored fluorescent dyes, it differentiates between multiple leaking fluid systems.


Common Mining Injuries


Mining is a dangerous industry. It’s often stated that safety is the top priority among global mining companies, however, serious injuries still occur on a regular basis. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, a mining employee is more likely to sustain a fatal injury or illness than an employee in any other industry. The severity of mining injuries are also more likely to be life-threatening or life-altering.


What causes mining injuries?

Often, injuries occur due to the poisonous or explosive gases preset in the ground, the use of explosives, and poor equipment maintenance. Methane, a highly explosive gas trapped within coal layers, is a serious threat for coal miners. Improper use of equipment or explosives will trigger coal dust explosions, which has been the cause of thousands of mining injuries in the past.

Using explosives, even properly, can cause an unsafe environment, causing flooding or wall collapsing. Reported injuries are often caused by falling rocks, misfires, and premature blasts.

Equipment malfunction is another leading cause of injuries in the mining industry, often leading to explosions, fires, muscle injuries and injection wounds. Injection wounds occur when a small leak in an equipment hose forces hydraulic fluid into the skin at the psi level often equivalent to that of a bullet fired from a handgun. Leaving just a pinpoint sized hole, these injuries often go untreated for days, at which point the only possible treatment is amputation.


How can injuries be prevented?

Preventative maintenance has become an essential tool in many industries, and is now being implemented into mining. Fixing equipment as it breaks is no longer an acceptable practice. Being one step ahead of equipment failure is the only way to reduce injury rates.

Spectroline FluidSafe™ drastically improves the safety and reliability of fluid power systems. Being a fluorescent dye additive, it become easier to spot small leaks before they become a problem, saving companies on their cost of hydraulic fluid. If a hydraulic injury is thought to have occurred, it can be seen immediately with the use of a blue light lamp. This also makes is simple for surgeons to see the extent of the fluid injection injury, greatly reducing the amount of tissue removal.

Improving Forensic Inspection With Ultraviolet and Blue Light Technology


Law enforcement officials worldwide rely on ultraviolet and blue light lamps for a wide variety of criminal investigations. Being a lightweight, compact tool makes them ideal for any crime scene investigation. They’re also ideal for: 

Latent Fingerprint Examinations
UV and blue light lamps enable crime scene investigators and forensic labs to see fingerprints that were developed with fluorescent materials.

Analysis of Blood and Other Bodily Fluids
When exposed to UV or blue light sources, bodily fluids and fluorescent-treated blood samples glow brightly and become easy to view.

Arson Investigation
Fire inspectors can actually see residual accelerant that has not been consumed by a fire. Under UV light, splash marks from chemical fuels on walls, furniture and carpets become instantly visible.

Counterfeit Document Verification
Driver’s licenses, passports, credit cards and many other official documents that have invisible fluorescent markings are quickly verified with UV lamps.

Counterfeit Currency Detection
Ultraviolet and blue light alternative light source scanners make different U.S. currency denominations glow with a specific color and show whether bills are genuine or counterfeit.

Spectroline forensic inspection lamps are easy to use, budget friendly, and save significant time in finding potential crime-solving evidence. Look for our products on CSI: Cyber Wednesdays on CBS at 10/9c or head to our website for more information:
