The FE-36 was the first system designed specifically for the development of latent fingerprints with both powders or ninhydrin. Worker safety is the number one priority and the FE‑36 is highly effective at reducing the potential for exposure to common forensic chemicals. The front opening is 10" and the internal blower creates a constant horizontal flow of air. A combination of pre-filtration and gas phase filtration captures contaminants before returning clean, filtered air to the workplace.
A. Laboratory air enters the workstation
B. Room air is used to capture airborne contaminants before being pulled into the filter
C. Contaminated air is pulled into the filtration bed for removal of powders and particulate prior to exiting the workstation
D. Contaminant-free clean air is recirculated into the room
