Portable Imaging of Prints & Biologicals
Expeditionary Labs & Crime Scenes
In The Field or In The Lab
SUMMARY: Advances in laser technology lowers procurement costs; multiplies field unit deployments; retires less effective LED forensic lamp sources; redefines expeditionary & crime scene “portability”.
Laser Spectral Brightness Superior to LED
Green (532nm wavelength) lasers have been repeatedly tested and proven to be superior to LED light sources as a tool for the detection & imaging of biological & print evidence in the field and in the lab. Superior spectral brightness provides the operator with a powerful and narrow wavelength band to excite or fluoresce biological evidence for further investigation and photography. Special operator glasses or cameras then filter & translate this narrow wavelength light source into high contrast images – evidence more easily developed and studied than with a less effective LED based source.
Man-Portable, Adaptable, Affordable
Z-Bolt® C-PRINT Lasers are similar in dimensions to a small-size flashlight, a feather-light 10 ounces. Easy to transport, carry, and operate, the C-PRINT’s capabilities compare favorably to the Coherent TracER at 45 pounds. The TracER is marketed as delivering “ultimate portability”, but is too heavy to effectively accompany LE, SOF, NSW, EOD, or CID teams into the field. Transported in a large hard case, the TracER is too unwieldy for rotary wing or vehicle transport. In contrast, the Z-Bolt® C-PRINT is MOLLE or belt portable for on site, on the battlefield forensic detection & effective imaging at expeditionary forensic labs; at crime scenes; at remote, isolated FOBs. The C-PRINT features digital variable power; beam-spot size control; an internal variable sealed zoom lens system; battery “Low-Power” indicator; and easy access power interlock.

AND as an Effective, Portable, & Affordable Lab Laser Replacement
C-PRINT pricing is reasonable - allowing for wider field deployment; expanded theater coverage; increased collectionopportunities. Approx. $8,000 ~ $9,500 vs. Coherent TracER
at $28,000 ~$48,000. LED forensic lights are currently the only portable, low-priced alternative to Coherent lasers, but lack the intense spectral brightness required for quality evidence imaging. Z-Bolt® Forensic Lasers are designed to replace these less effective LED lights, sustain budget viability, & deliver increased field portability & practicality. The C-PRINT ships with orange 22 filter safety glasses; rechargeable battery kit; nylon pouch for field use – all in a hard case for stowage & transport.
