Cyanoacrylate fuming chambers are specifically designed for the processing of evidence items related to latent fingerprints in forensics and crime laboratories, while eliminating user exposure to hazardous chemical fumes. Cyanoacrylate (also called super glue) fuming method is a chemical technique used to detect latent fingerprints on non-porous surfaces such as glass and plastics. The method produces clear and stable white fingerprints by relying on the deposition of polymerized cyanoacrylate ester on the residues of the latent fingerprints. Although cyanoacrylate is not considered toxic or carcinogenic, its vapors can cause irritation to the eyes and mucous membranes, resulting in discomfort, tearing, and even blurred vision. Fuming chambers feature airtight seals to prevent fumes escape, and appropriate ventilation systems to ensure the safety of the technicians when operating. Fuming chambers are made of a transparent material, such as polypropylene, to allow the easy observation of evidence. In addition, humidity control, temperature control, vapor circulation, and automatic removal of cyanoacrylate vapor are some of the additional advantages of fuming chambers. Amerigo Scientific provides portable and lightweight fuming chambers that make evidence processing safer, easier, and more accurate.
