HORIBA Scientific has announced that “SPEX Forensics,” a leading brand in forensic light sources products, is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

HORIBA took over the SPEX Forensics brand in 1997. Jobin Yvon’s SPEX Forensics has been making forensics products since 1993, primarily for the law enforcement market; management recognized the market need for a more versatile light source. After joining the HORIBA group, SPEX Forensics continues to be an independent brand focused solely on manufacturing light sources.

Over the course of 25 years, SPEX Forensics has shipped thousands of light sources to hundreds of customers, worldwide. In addition, the product line expanded to include RUVIS systems (Reflective Ultra Violet Imaging Systems), Fingerprint Imaging systems, and an AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification System.

“We are very proud to have reached this important milestone,” said Jon Goldey, Product Manager for SPEX Forensics. “Our customers rely on our products to ensure that the evidence they collect will be accurate, reliable, and will ultimately solve the crimes! Our diverse product lines, quality, and our support have been key to our success.”
