Full kit, great for investigation on small areas
The BLUESTAR® Forensic MINI-KIT offers a quick solution to check for invisible blood traces in a restricted area such as the interior of a vehicle.
Simple to use: simply add the two tablets contained in a sachet to one of the sprayers containing distilled water.
Very easy to use, it allows investigators to detect the presence of blood traces very quickly.
A positive reaction indicates the probable presence of blood. BLUESTAR® Forensic reacts on any type of blood, it is possible to use a BLUESTAR® Identi-HEM® or BLUESTAR® OBTI test to confirm a very high probability of the presence of human blood.
Product code : #BL-FOR-125
BLUESTAR® Forensic is a blood developer for use at a crime scene or in the laboratory. It allows the detection of minute, erased or thoroughly washed blood traces, with or without detergent, even at very high dilutions.
The contact of the reagent with a blood trace will produce a luminous reaction called chemiluminescence.
It can be applied on all supports: metals, plastics, fabrics, etc. The reaction is visible to the naked eye and does not alter the DNA.
BLUESTAR® Forensic is more sensitive than other blood developers. It can detect traces of blood with the naked eye up to dilutions of 1/100000 (see study).
BLUESTAR® Forensic reveals invisible and microscopic blood traces or droplets, especially on dark surfaces. The sensitivity does not depend on the volume of the stain, but on the actual presence of blood.
BLUESTAR® Forensic produces a stronger and longer light reaction that does not require total darkness to be seen and allows to obtain good photographs or films of the bloodstain revealed with ordinary photographic means.
BLUESTAR® Forensic is capable of revealing very old blood. The oldest blood detected by BLUESTAR® Forensic dates back 7000 years during archaeological research (see publication).
Some food or chemical products may also react to BLUESTAR® Forensic. Training in the use of the product is essential for proper use and recognition of false positives.
A properly trained technician will immediately know the difference between a reaction on blood and a false positive. See our tutorials or contact us for a personalized training.
