Firearms Residue Detection Kit (Lead)




The ability to study and measure the spread and distribution of firearms discharge particles on the clothing of a victim or upon an object can be a useful tool in determining the distance and angle of firearms discharge. Although the traditional methods of examining visible particles and scorching or tattooing are useful, smaller particles and condensed gases are generally not observable. A chemical method of detection and enhancement allows these particles and condensed lead gases to turn a pink color then a blue color for more accurate determinations. This method can also be utilized to determine if a suspicious hole in an object is in fact a bullet hole. In this case, the lead wipe commonly present around a bullet hole will be visualized as a blue color.

Our Firearms Residue Detection Kit provides all of the chemical reagents and supplies required to perform these enhancement procedures. The kit contains eight sets of premeasured reagents, spray heads, positive control strips, and instructions for use. Sets of refill reagents are also available to reorder. The kit is packaged in a durable, lightweight plastic case with foam for easy and safe transport from one crime scene to another. Please note, Reagent B and Reagent C have a long shelf life and can be reused. Reagent A should be discarded after use as it has a short shelf life.
