Product Description

Luminol is a highly sensitive blood reagent used to detect latent bloodstain evidence, usually associated with a clean up subsequent to a bloodletting event. A strong steady chemiluminescent (Low blue light production) reaction takes place when the luminol formula is applied to blood, even in very trace amounts. Luminol must be used in total darkness for best results since the reaction produces light. This Luminol formula has been used extensively in forensic applications and is well documented in forensic literature. It has successfully detected latent blood evidence over 36 months old. This kit is designed for error proof mixing at the scene to ensure the highest sensitivity of the reagent. Luminol should be used immediately after mixing since the sensitivity will diminish within 2 hours after mixing. To Use: Apply luminol mist to suspected blood. If blood is present a Chemiluminessence, (Low blue light) is visible. The reaction appears brighter when viewed in total darkness.

I used this for a Forensic Science class. I demonstrated the Luminol using cow blood (from a steak) with no problem. The only think I was a little surprised on was that once you mix the solution, it's only good for about 8 hours. It says that right on the bottle, but I don't think it said that on the Amazon description. But you could always just mix part of it at a time.

I bought this to use in my classroom and did not realize it was only good for 8 hours after activating it. It would be beneficial if the seller would add this to the product description. I bought it to use over the next few months in a forensic medicine course at the high school level and bought two bottles. Wasn't planning on a one time use kind of product.

Worked excellently. I bought this because I was spitting out blood all the time. The times where I could taste blood but not see it in my sputum made me wonder if blood was really there. I needed to collect some empirical evidence to convince myself, and my doctors, that I really did have blood in my spit even though one couldn't see it. And that, this blood was nearly always present.

The problem, though, with the spray kit is that one is led to believe that one needs to use the entire kit in one go. You don't need to. I was able to do some calculations to weigh out proportional amounts of liquid to dry chemicals to create the right concentration of liquid. However, in doing this, I eventually found that one could just simply guess and eye ball it. The resulting solution is still able to detect blood very well.

So far, I've made 10+ small amounts of luminol solutions of various concentrations (I've been mostly doing it by eyeballing the measured amounts). They all work well with detecting trace amounts of blood from a known sample (pin prick on my knuckles swiped on a dish). I just use about half a teaspoon of liquid and maybe 20 flakes of luminol. I stir it up, and then I started testing my sputum for blood.

So, luminol glows more or less depending on the concentration of the blood in the solution. If there are trace amounts of blood in a large amount of liquid with some luminol, the solution will glow faintly. If there is trace amounts of blood in no amount of liquid except the luminol solution, it will grow brighter. Hence, the glow's intensity is based on concentration of blood. Regardless, if there is no blood, it will not glow.

So, I tested a control sample, my wife's spit. It didn't glow at all.

This luminol is a terrific and easy to use product. Just mix the two parts, shake and spray. Very bright and easy to photograph.

I wish it was sold in smaller amounts. After you mix the reagents, you can use the luminol for up to 8 hours. It's a big amount for a single use type of experiment.
