- the filter workstation for evidence screening and photography
Evidence processing often requires a great deal of PPE. PPE is necessary to help preserve evidence and avoid contaminating it. Not only can the evidence itself expose investigators to harmful material, so can the treatment processes used to process the evidence. Our PHOTOvent workstations are specially designed to help address some of these issues and make working with evidence safer and cleaner.

PHOTOvent‘s special integrated filter system is built right into the work surface itself. Fumes and loose particulates like dust and fingerprint powders get pulled down into our multi-stage filter system to reduce the risk of inhalation and contamination without needed any external ventilation hookups.

Our PHOTOvent workstations come in two sizes and have fixed height or motorized height adjustable options so they can be used sitting or standing. They also have a camera column with manual or motorized height adjustment options, depending on the needs of your camera system.

The stainless steel work surface is easy to clean, durable, and can withstand harsh cleaning peroxide and alcohol solutions needed for DNA decontamination.

  • The work surface of PHOTOvent has been made from high quality stainless steel to create a durable work surface that can easily stand up to the alcohol and peroxide-based cleaning agents often used for DNA disinfection.

    For users who do not wish to photograph evidence with the workstation surface as a background, we can also supply a 50x50cm large evidence surface with a printed scale, available in either matte black or white.

    Should you require further customization, our EVIscreen modular camera column systems and can be customized to your specific needs to create a fully custom workstation to suit your needs. Contact us for assistance ordering a custom option.

  • PHOTOvent has two different filter stages. The H13 HEPA filter cassette can easily become saturated quickly when it is the only filter used, so we also include a pre-filter mat to filter out larger particulates that could quickly cause the HEPA filter to need replacement. This prolongs filter life and reduces the operating cost.

    The pre-filter mat should be replaced after 250 hours of use. The HEPA filter is equipped with a sensor that will cause the system to notify the user when it is time to change the filter. The filter life will depend on the type of evidence being processed and how often it is used. Independent of the filter saturation, the filters should be replaced at least every 12 months.

    Changing the prefilter mat and filter are both very simple. This can be done by any user in less than a few minutes and requires no special tools or training.

  • PHOTOvent is only available with the filter system, however, if you require a workstation without a filter setup, consider our EVIscreen system. EVIscreen is another modular system that can be used to customize a workstation for you without a filter system. EVIscreen has a wide range of size and work surface material options.

  • PHOTOvent is a low maintenance system. Aside from regular cleaning, users simply need to change the filter and pre-filter mat when required.

    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 underService & Maintenance
