AccuTrans is a highly-sensitive, DNA-friendly casting material for tool marks, firearms and lifting latent prints from difficult surfaces. Casting material comes in dual-stage tubes, which include casting material and catalyst. When utilized, casting material and catalyst are mixed on demand through a unique mixing tip. No hand mixing is required and casting material is only used as needed. Casting material won’t dry in the tube if the tip is left on. Replace the tip when ready to make another cast. Each kit includes two tubes of AccuTrans, one applicator gun, 40 mixing tips and a carrying case.
• Provides extremely fine detail
• Less than 0.2 percent shrinkage rate
• Won’t run and releases easily from metal surfaces
• Doesn’t sweat (dried material won’t adhere to other casting material after drying)
• Remains elastic, yet retains its original shape
Traxtone® — 14 Percent More Casting Material
Now available in both our standard green color and a new buff color, Traxtone is a die stone dental stone material that produces highly detailed impressions with minimum setting time. Casting material is pre-measured in special 2lbs (.9kg) mixing bags. Simply add water and begin mixing. Special pigment flakes embedded inside the casting material indicate when the Traxtone is sufficiently mixed. Once all the pigment flakes have been blended into the mixture, it is ready to pour. Setting time is approximately 20–30 minutes. Because each bag is self-contained, Traxtone is easy to store and transport. There is no need to repackage bulk material and no need to worry about moisture. Traxtone provides superior detail reproduction and durability and has a higher compression strength than most casting materials at 18,000 psi.
Each Traxtone kit includes five bags of Traxtone, a measuring cup for water, a bottle of hair spray to hold loose dirt and sand in place before casting, and a 12” (30.5cm) wooden ruler. Bulk Traxtone bags are also available as refills. Traxtone is also available in bulk material. See below for details.
3M ™ Vacuum Collection System
Pick up minute particles as small as 0.1 micron in size (about ¼ thediameter of an average human hair) with this complete vacuum system. Each individually wrapped, cleanroom-sealed filter nozzle is designed to be used once and submitted to the crime lab for examination using the included evidence bag. Use a new filter nozzle each time to minimize the chance of cross-contamination.

Perfect Print™ Pads
Perfect Print ink pads, from Identicator®, can be used on any plain paper and produce sharp, black fingerprints. The hard, ceramic surfacefeatures micropores which allow ink to quickly rise to the surface of the pad and prevents worn or dry spots from forming on the pad overtime. More importantly, however, the unique micropores in the ceramic surface regulate the flow of ink, preventing fingers from becoming over-inked, resulting in unacceptable prints. Once ink is applied to the fingerprint card, it dries almost instantly, making it almost impossible to smudge or smear the fingerprint. Clean up is simple. Simply rub the fingers together or wipe clean with a cloth. No special hand cleaners are required. Best of all, the pads won’t dry out over time, regardless if they are left open or unused. Available in four different sizes toaccommodate any application. The large PI 30 pad features mounting brackets for adhering to a work surface.
I.D. Print® Pads
The I.D. Print system is a unique method of producing permanent, high contrast black fingerprints without the mess of inks. Ideal for use at banks,retail establishments and in child identification programs, individuals simply press a finger onto an I.D. Print pad and then onto a special chemicallytreated card or label. Prints appear immediately, but leave no discoloration or residue on the fingers. The resultant prints dry instantly. The pads feature a unique ceramic insert, which prevents the inkless solution from evaporating over time and it assures that the inkless solution only coats the ridges of the fingers, producing perfect prints every time.
Dual Cardholder Kit
Everything needed for a beginning fingerprinting program, this portable kit includes Perfect Print™ pad, a box of 500 ReTabs and 50 PrePrint™ skin conditioner coaters in a compact carrying and storage case lined with protective foam.
Portable Fingerprint Kit (with Folding Stand)
Same as above except this kit contains a Folding Stand with PerfectPrint pad, one box of 500 ReTabs, and 50 PrePrint towelettes in adurable plastic carrying case that is lined with protective foam.
The PrintCup™ makes coating and printing impaired fingers simple. Allowing you to better control the application of ink to the fingers, a user simply inserts the finger into the cup. The cup is then rolled around the finger, completely inking it. The PrintCup™ utilizes our Perfect Print™ ink, so clean-up can be accomplished by simply wiping the fingers with a cloth. A postmortem card strip holder(above) with adhesive or postmortem cardstrips can be used to record the inked fingerprints. Each PrintCup™ yields approximately 650 individual prints.

The XCAT Applications and Technology
The XCAT is designed for sampling suspicious drugs and other substances onhands, vehicles, packages and surfaces. It is intended for presumptive testing.
The XCAT uses detection cards with specially formulated optical detection inksand software to identify characteristics unique to each individual or group ofchemically related analytes.Each analyte or group of analytes is detected with a dedicated card.
The unit uniquely identifies and analyzes each card (eg. cocaine or GSR) andreturns a red or green light signal to the user simply indicating “detection” or“no detection.”
This small, portable UV light is only 6.5” (16.5cm) in length and fitseasily inside a shirt pocket.
