Anniversary: SPEX Forensics at 20 years

Anniversary: SPEX Forensics at 20 years

Posted on: Jan 01, 2017

When we started making forensic products back in 1993, it was just one product for a specific customer. It seemed like a small idea for a big company who had spent the better part of a century making equipment for academia. But with that first shipment we began to realize the forensic community had a definite need for a more versatile light source.

Four years passed while we refined our initial offerings, all the while listening to the community; we learned.

In January 1997, SPEX Forensics was formed as its own division within the company. The division consisted of only four people back then. But soon we started to grow, innovating all the way. In the process, we gained a reputation as the premier manufacturer of Forensic Light Sources shipping thousands of light sources worldwide. Eventually we expanded the product line with RUVIS, then Imaging Systems, and eventually our own AFIS system.

In 2017 SPEX Forensics celebrates its 20th Anniversary by releasing the first LED light source that performs like a true Forensic Light Source.  Click here to find out more about the HandScope LED.

We would like to thank all of our customers over the years, for their trust and partnership in making SPEX Forensics a success; and for all the hard, crucial work they do for the public good. We are proud to be their partners.
