Mystaire® CA Series cyanoacrylate fuming chambers are the standard by which automated latent print development chambers are measured.

The patented* recirculation filtration system with precise process controls for time, temperature and humidity put Mystaire CA chambers in a class of their own.

The CA Series is constructed from powder coated aluminum with an automatically locking safety glass viewing door. Microprocessor control allows the operator to set fuming cycle time and relative humidity levels between 50-80%.

*US Patent # 6,660,054

What is the cyanoacrylate fuming method?

The cyanoacrylate fuming method, or superglue fuming method is the forensic process of heating cyanoacrylate in order to capture latent, or not yet visible fingerprints assumed to be on non-porus evidence. The cyanoacrylate fumes adhere to fingerprint residue in order for the natural ridges of the print to be lifted for forensic fingerprint analysis.

Fingerprint Dusting


Using the Mystaire CA Series Fuming Chamber is simple:

  • position the non-porous evidence inside the chamber

  • add cyanoacrylate to the heating element

  • push the start button to begin fuming

  • when the cycle time is complete, the door will unlock and developed prints may be processed

Features of the Cyanoacrylate Fuming Chamber

  • The evidence technician can set fume cycle time and relative humidity via the simple-to-use microprocessor controller
  • During the fume and purge process the aluminum door automatically locks to prevent exposure to potentially harmful cyanoacrylate fumes
  • Our exclusive, patented* filtration process ensures potentially hazardous cyanoacrylate fumes, that are generated during the fuming process, are effectively removed during the purge cycle
  • The cyanoacrylate-laden chamber air is not exhausted into the room like other brands of cyanoacrylate fuming chambers
  • The air is recirculated through a specially blended activated gas phase carbon filtration bed until the cyanoacrylate fumes are removed
  • Our patented* method for capturing potentially harmful cyanoacrylate fumes is more effective than the single-pass filtration method incorporated by other chamber designs

*US Patent # 6,660,054

A. Cyanoacrylate is heated at and released into the main chamber

B. Heated cyanoacrylate is mixed with humidity

C. An internal circulation fan then mixes the cyanoacrylate vapor and humidity for even distribution around the articles of evidence

D. At the end of the user-set development time, air is purged from the main chamber into the specially blended gas phase carbon filter

E. Chamber air is then placed into the patented* recirculation loop that continues to filter the internal chamber air until it has been scrubbed free of residual cyanoacrylate fumes
