 Forensic Technology

Foster + Freeman forensic science products assist in the detection, capture and examination of evidence at crime the crime scene and to perform thorough analysis of fingerprints, body fluids and other traces of evidence in the laboratory.

The company manufactures several ‘traditional’ forensic science products, including fingerprint fuming cabinets and ultra-bright narrowband LED light sources, but is better know for its development of new and novel technologies.
