SecureDry™ Evidence Drying Cabinets
Maintain the Chain of Custody and Protect Your Evidence
SecureDry™ Evidence Drying Cabinets
SecureDry™ evidence drying cabinets are designed to provide a secure and dedicated area for drying wet evidentiary items while creating a barrier to keep out the potential threat of cross contamination. The cabinet utilizes pre-filtration, HEPA and carbon filtration to minimize the potential for environmental cross contamination and employee exposure to putrid odors or biological material.
SecureDry™ is constructed from rigid white polypropylene that is thermally fused in order to create a continuous chamber, eliminating structural cracks and crevices. The elimination of cracks and crevices allows for ease of cleaning and maintenance between cases and minimizes the potential for bio-burden build-up. An optional timed 254 nanometer UV light is available for chamber irradiation, further reducing cross-contamination risk.
Added security comes from the powder coated steel doors with keyed entry, not found on other drying cabinets. This reinforced steel door is designed to provide a tamper resistant barrier while creating a positive seal between the chamber and the environment, minimizing the potential for cross contamination.
In addition to the door pre-filter, within the drying chamber is a second pre-filter. This pre-filter is referred to as a trace evidence filter and is designed to trap any potential evidence that may become airborne during the drying process. All drying air must pass through the trace evidence pre-filter before leaving the drying chamber. This filter should be changed between each case and retained for further analysis by laboratory professionals.
By drying crime scene evidence with SecureDry™ you keep your occupational exposure to potentially harmful biological material to a minimum.

HOW IT WORKS
Room air is pulled into SecureDry™ through electrostatically charged pre-filtration at "A". This pre-filtration is designed to remove gross particulate and fibers (potential cross-contamination).
Once room air is inside SecureDry™, it circulates around the wet evidence at ″B″ before entering a three-stage filtration process.
The exhaust air passes through an electrostatically charged pre-filter at ″C″. This pre-filter captures any trace evidence present in the airstream, and should be removed between cases for laboratory examination.
Air then passes into the HEPA filter at ″D″. The HEPA filter captures potentially harmful biological material.
Air passes through the gas phase carbon filter at ″E″ before exiting the chamber. The gas phase carbon filter prevents putrid odors from escaping into the laboratory space.

SecureDry™ Optional UV Light Sterilization Kit
As a secondary disinfection method to Solucide®, SecureDry™ evidence drying cabinets can be fitted with a timer-activated short wave ultraviolet light sterilization kit. This sterilization method is effective in denaturing potentially live cells remaining in the chamber after use. The short wave UV light irradiates the interior of the chamber prior to placing the new evidence into SecureDry™, resulting in minimized cross contamination potential.
SecureDry™ Starter Kit
The evidence drying cabinet starter kit contains all the necessary items to begin using the cabinets.
- 1 bottle Solucide®
- 10 plastic shirt hangers
- 1 large sponge
- 4 clip style plastic hangers
- 1 pack trace evidence pre-filters
- 1 small sponge
