Handheld, Multi-Spectral LED Light Source with Advanced Functionality: The biggest leap forward in Forensic Light Source technology for over 20 years.
A complete ALS kit in a single light source, the Crime-lite X enables the examiner to seamlessly switch between White, UV, Violet, Blue, Blue/Green, Green, Orange, Red, and Infrared LEDs, to perform a comprehensive multi-spectral examination of a crime scene.
Operated via a simple 3-button interface, the Crime-lite X provides new functionality, never seen before in a forensic light source, that will ensure that crime scene and laboratory examiners reveal the maximum amount of evidence in every examination.
1 Light Source,
10 LEDs, 175 Wavelengths
Crime-lite X includes White, UV, Violet, Blue, Blue/Green, Green, Orange, Red, and Infrared LEDs.
Combine any 3 LEDs to multiply output power and generate 175x wavelength combinations to provide the optimum illumination for any evidence type.
Serology Search Kit
We also offer a kit specifically designed for forensic serology, featuring a 5x waveband forensic light source for the detection and examination of body fluids and additional accessories.
Take complete control of Crime-lite X functions and monitor light source performance via the integral LCD display panel.
- Quickly cycle through illumination wavebands
- Select multi-LED wavelength combinations

Crime-lite anti-glare viewing goggles and camera filters are essential for the examination and photography of fluorescent evidence and are supplied as standard with all Crime-lite 82S cased sets.
Each anti-glare filter is manufactured from Schott glass with an additional coating to suppress auto-fluorescent emissions from the Schott glass itself, thus ensuring maximum optical performance when using high power light sources.

Designed for use with the Crime-lite 82S, the Crime-lite Viewing Box provides a simple solution to a long-standing problem.
When using a high-intensity light source for the examination of fluorescent evidence including latent fingerprints it is often the case that ambient light reduces the visibility of the print. The Crime-lite Viewing Box solves this problem by shielding the fingerprint from all ambient light ensuring optimum visibility.
The Crime-lite Viewing box has pre-cut slots to accommodate Foster + Freeman anti-glare viewing goggles or an SLR camera. Accessories include a camera stand and lens bellows.
Available for use with all Foster + Freeman Crime-lites, this heavy-duty low-profile articulated arm allows for easy hands-free operation of high-intensity light sources.
Internal power cables can be used to connect the Crime-lite (and optional camera) to an AC mains power outlet without trailing wires.
Crime-lite’s are attached via an adjustable clamp.
Available for use with all Foster + Freeman Crime-lites but originally designed for use with Crime-lite 82S IR and Crime-lite ML2 systems (light source, camera, and tablet PC), this robust wheeled cart is ideal for use in forensic laboratories.
The cart is mounted on lockable castors and can be manoeuvred around exhibits. A two-point fixing plate allows for the easy attachment of a Crime-lite articulated arm.
An optional uninterruptible power supply can be used to power equipment with no trailing wires. When not in use the trolley can be connected to an AC mains power outlet to be recharged.
available in a variety of sizes for all Crime-lite forensic light sources.
