MBD Latent Print Fluorescent Stain Mixture is used after the cyanoacrylate development of latent prints. It allows you to view and photograph latent prints on various colored surfaces and is particularly useful for prints developed on plastic bags. These prints are viewable using a forensic light source.
MBD Fluorescent Stain Mixture is used in conjunction with cyanoacrylate to form a compound that will fluoresce under a laser or forensic light source.
Note: It should never be used on latent prints that have not been fumed with Cyanoacrylate.
MBD Fluorescent Stain is applied by submerging the item into the solution. The item should be rinsed to remove any excess dye using our MBD Fluorescent Stain Mixture Rinse/Destain (Reorder No. CHE-3167) and allowed to dry. To view the developed print, use a forensic light source and then photograph to keep as evidence.
Our MBD Fluorescent Stain and Rinse/Destain are both supplied in a liter bottle of premixed solution.
