- the mobile cyanoacrylate fuming system for the development of fingerprints at crime scenes

Cyanoacrylate (superglue) fuming is a method for developing fingerprints on non-porous surfaces, such as metal, glass, and plastics. Our MOBIfume series has been developed specifically for those who need all the high quality and reliability of a laboratory fuming chamber in a mobile unit suitable for use right at a crime scene or in a larger fuming space such as a garage or evidence treatment tent.

MOBIfume is a new innovative system that lets users fume an entire crime scene at once if needed. Our modular system can be scaled depending on the size and shape of the space you need to fume, whether you need to develop evidence in a small fuming tent or a large airplane hangar. Each MOBIfume unit can run a complete cycle, including a purge cycle to remove leftover cyanoacrylate from the air in your treatment area, using an efficient activated carbon filter.
Just like with our laboratory MEGAfume fuming chambers, users have full control over the parameters used during evidence development. Our wireless tablet system lets users control and monitor all fuming units remotely, adjust cycles as needed, monitor filter life with the filter management system, and even form groups of fuming units if they want to develop evidence in multiple different spaces at the same time.
Our systems can be set up, taken down, and even dismantled for routine cleaning without any special tools. They also come in sturdy handled tarpaulin bags that are easy to wipe clean and are practical for both storage and transportation.

  • MOBIfume standard orders come with a wireless tablet and two complete fuming units. Each fuming unit is a modular all-in-one system that can be connected to the tablet wirelessly and run a full fuming cycle. A single fuming unit can fume a room 50 – 60  m³. Adding another unit makes it possible to fume 100 – 120  m³ of space. Thanks to our modular and scalable design, users can connect up to 99 fuming units to a single tablet at once, allowing large garages and even many different rooms in a building to be fumed at the same time.

    Users can choose to run units all using the same cycle settings, or they can customize the parameters for individual units or large groups of units and run different development cycles at the same time from a single tablet. This is useful for fuming multiple areas at the same time, and for fuming complex crime scenes. Many crime scenes, especially in residential areas, have a lot of variety in the shape of the space and the material in that space. Materials in different parts of a room can make it advantageous to have units with different humidity settings set up in different areas of the room, and rooms with complex shapes can benefit from being able to position units where there are most needed.

    MOBIfume units are all compatible with each other, so if users discover they need to order more fuming units later, they will still be able to connect them to their original tablet. If needed, MOBIfume fuming units from other departments can even be borrowed and connected. The size of the space that can be fumed is largely only limited by the number of fuming units a department has access to.

  • We can’t tell you exactly how much you will need for each situation. Different developers have very different requirements regarding how they should be used and how much will need to be used. Always refer to the instructions that accompany your developer to help determine how much developer to use and what cycle settings to use.
    As many developers have guides on how much to use based on the room size, we have included a calculator feature in our tablet system. This feature helps users calculate how large a space is and better determine how much developer they will need.

  • MOBIfume can be used with all known cyanoacrylate developers on the market, including one-step fluorescent developers. It can be used with developers that require temperatures between 100 – 250°C and 60-90% rH. Both liquid and powder developers can be used. Thanks to our cycle customization options that let you fully customize your cycle parameters, you’ll be prepared for developers that aren’t even on the market yet, making our systems more future-proof. Our filter management system can be adjusted for different developer types to accurately monitor your filter life, regardless of the type of developer you choose to use.

    Our pre-programmed options include standard cyanoacrylate developer, and both liquid and powder fluorescent developer programs. In addition to the fully customizable program options, these pre-program cycle settings can be adjusted and saved as needed.

  • MOBIfume is a very low maintenance system, like many of our other systems. Aside from the regular cleaning that all fuming chambers need, users simply need to replace the carbon filter when they are notified by the filter management system. As MOBIfume relies on a water reservoir container to increase the humidity in a space, it is a good idea to empty the container after each use and before the unit is packed away for storage.

    For quality assurance, we recommend that the unit be serviced regularly by an Attestor or Attestor certified partner.
    For customers who require documented annual servicing and calibration as part of their ISO 17025 accreditation, we offer service contracts for regular service. These can also include parts warranties if desired. More information on this can be found under Service & Maintenance
