Rodent contamination detector

October 1, 2010


Used in warehouses, food processing facilities, and meat and dairy processing plants, the Spectronics Spectroline B-260 battery-operated, long-wave UV lamp detects the appearance of rodent hair and urine. When the lamp shines on contaminated areas, rodent hair fluoresces blue-white; urine fluoresces blue-white to yellow-white. The lightweight, portable unit is equipped with a 6-volt rechargeable battery, AC charger and charging cord. Made of a durable, high-impact plastic housing, it has a stainless steel tube guard that protects against accidental breakage.
