UV Dyetective Marker Kit


LUVINOL ™ Powered UV THEFT DETECTION Forensic Applicator and UV Forensic Torch.

Introducing a NEW range of British Made, Forensic Workplace Theft & Tamper Detection tools, each with one purpose in mind, to help answer a simple question. WHO is…?

WHO is Taking these…?
WHO is Stealing these…?
WHO is Using these…?
WHO is Tampering with…?
WHO is Damaging…?

Its all about establishing the Trustworthiness or Culpability of one or more individuals within your organisation, workplace or home, and to determine if misunderstanding or misconduct is responsible for their actions, all conducted in a discreet, confidential and professional manner.

However, to answer any one of these questions you need to obtain indisputable Proof of Contact. In other words, a reliable means which clearly demonstrates (beyond any doubt) ‘WHO’ physically touched or handled a specific item; which could be anything from a banknote to a bicycle.

To achieve this, the object (or surface) is lightly coated with a film of LUVINOL ™ Smart Detection Gel.  This highly effective clear coating acts as a temporary UV SKIN DYE which does not dry-out and remains effective for many hours. (see tabs for more info)

So now, when someone takes, steals, borrows, uses, tampers-with or in any way makes touch-contact with the item, it will leave an INVISIBLE UV STAIN on the person’s hands; one which only becomes visible under Forensic UV light.  This indisputable proof-of-contact method allows you to easily identify the ‘who?’ However, when it comes to finding out the ‘why?’  Well that’s really down to you, but at least you’ll know who to ask!

UV DYETECTIVE MARKERBest suited for use on mainly smaller items and valuables such as: coins, banknotes, jewellery, keys, handles, doorknobs, lids, switches etc.

UV DYETECTIVE SPRAY:  Best suited for use on larger items such as:  lockers, parcels, bicycles, tools, cash boxes, stock boxes, blanket coverage of objects etc.

UV DYETECTIVE POWDER:  Best suited for use where a non-toxic, non-staining, dry powder is needed on a white / light coloured surface.

A  Management Guide to Workplace Theft Detection is provided with this product. It contains a Step-by-Step guide on how to devise, prepare and execute a thief trap from conception to conclusion, along with full directions for the correct use of this product.

What is LUVINOL?


Developed in the UK by GLOWTEC. This amazing, new liquid, smart gel is odourless, colourless, non-toxic and completely safe for temporary use on virtually all indoor ‘non-porous’ surfaces (not suitable for outdoor use).

When a LUVINOL ™ coated object (or surface) is touched, the skin is immediately stained with a temporary, invisible UV DYE which will be detectable on the skin for at least 24 hours; even after intensive hand washing and showering. However, when a UV Forensic torch is shown onto their hands the invisible stain will be revealed, providing the indisputable ‘proof of contact’ you require.

LUVINOL ™ will remain active until it is no longer required, where after it can be simply wiped clean and will not permanently stain or tarnish surfaces and fabrics like visible stains do!

Suitable for use on most surfaces such as:

Use it on:  Coins, Banknotes, Jewellery, Stock items, PCs, Phones, Laptops, Alarms, Instruments, Bicycles, Tools, Keys/Locks, Equipment, Control Panels, Handles, Doorknobs, Lids, Switches etc etc.

Important Note:

The UV DYETECTIVE Marker contains LUVINOL™ Smart Detection Gel; a safe, water based, non-toxic, non hazardous clear liquid gel.

However, applying this to surfaces which are naturally water-resisting / water-rejecting (known as hydrophobic) will mean the LUVINOL may revert to small globules or rivulets rather than remain in a thin, even coating.  This characteristic is more likely to be seen on oil-painted or bare metal and plastic surfaces, but will not prevent LUVINOL from doing its job. However, if there is a downside to be aware of it is that the clear LUVINOL coating may become more visible on some surfaces giving them a ‘wet’ appearance.

In some instances the Dyetective Spray may be a better option as it is able to lay down a fine dust-like layer of microscopic droplets which are less affected by this hydrophobic characteristic.

EU & International Orders

As of July 1st 2021 there are new EU rules on how VAT is charged for online / web orders.  As a result, orders originating from any EU country below a net value of 150 Euros / £135 will now have VAT added at the prevailing rate of that country. We therefore have a £136 Minimum Order Value for Private (Non-Business) EU orders.

NOTE:  Whilst we will not add VAT to your order, VAT and Customs charges will be payable once the goods have arrived in your country.

EU Businesses with a verifiable VAT and EORI number will not be affected by this change and may contact us directly if they need to place an order below £136 net, however, we do have a standard £50 net Minimum Order Value for ALL EU and International orders.

We will only ship EU and International orders at the Buyers risk. Once the goods are handed over to the courier they become the buyers property and responsibility.

For reasons of security and speed, we only ship EU and International orders via Express Courier.  Delivery charges are calculated at checkout.
