Use & Benefits

With more intensity and larger spot size the HandScope Xenon Forensic Light Source is the most versatile battery powered FLS available.

The HandScope Xenon is a Forensic Light Source that combines the versatility of multiple wavelengths with the convenience of battery power. It features more intensity than other battery powered alternate light sources and a larger, more highly defined, focusable spot size. This allows unprecedented control of the output to maximize the detection of evidence.


The HandScope’s innovative dual wheel combination allows for superior background rejection as there are up to 13 wavelengths to choose from.  That level of selectivity should allow you to find a wavelength that reduces background fluorescence.  Additionally, the HandScope Xenon also offers the versatility of both battery and AC power.

The HandScope Xenon is the only battery powered instrument allowing one hand operation. That is the ability to direct and select the wavelength of light with one hand. Utilizing thumbwheels, the instrument incorporates the filters in a protective housing that allows the user to hold the unit and switch wavelengths with one hand.

Other units require a second hand for the disassembly of the unit to change the wavelength.

One-hand operation makes it the most convenient forensic light source. Only the HandScope allows this one-hand operation.

One Hand Operation = Convenience and Quick Crime Scene Searches.

Ease of use is not a luxury, it is a necessity.

No other battery powered instrument is available with as many wavelengths. The more wavelengths a device has, the better chance to detect evidence and reject backgrounds.

LED based units by other manufacturers do not contain UV, they use Violet which is close but, “not quite”. The HandScope Xenon contains both violet and True UV, 300nm to 400nm.

The HandScope Xenon has a uniform, coherent spot. Uniformity of Spot = Quality Photography.

The HandScope Xenon features a Xenon lamp powered either by the power supply or the included rechargeable battery.

The HandScope Xenon outperforms competitive battery powered units, in the most important wavelength range, the BLUE. LED units made by other manufacturers do NOT feature UV (300 – 400nm), only violet which is sometimes labeled “UV.” Other LED units only include 4-5 wavelengths versus 7-13 with the Handscope Xenon! LED units require that EACH surface you examine be searched with different heads or wands. This makes crime scene
processing much longer than it is with the HandScope Xenon.
