Introducing Leeds newest forensic laboratory imaging solution, the Leeds n-IRC Near-Infrared Color Camera & Software Kit for Zeiss Stemi 2000 providing a single CCD color camera that yields real time, high contrast, visible light (color) and n-IR images.   Through feedback from our forensic customers who purchased the Leeds Spectral Vision (LSV) system,  we are pleased to introduce this new Leeds n-IRC kit as a solution for those examiners who specifically utilize IR imaging capabilities for the location, analysis and documentation of blood spatter and gunshot residue, but do not require the ultraviolet (UV) or fluorescence imaging aspects available in the LSV.

In the example of gunshot residue (GSR) analysis on a dark piece of fabric, such as black fleece, GSR detection can be difficult.  Based on the type of fabric, how much the fabric absorbs light and it’s fluorescence attributes, GSR may not always be visible with white light.  Using the Leeds n-IRC near-infrared color camera and software kit, the near-infrared light makes detection of GSR significantly easier.
