Scent Evidence K9 Announces New Scent Collection Tool

Scent Evidence K9 is proud to announce the launch of its new scent collection tool for forensics and law enforcement investigators. The SEKR is a portable, durable, and effective scent vacuum and storage unit that is capable of collecting and storing uncontaminated odor during crime scene investigations.

SEK9 Team develops new scent collection tool

The SEKR was developed by Scent Evidence K9’s Research and Development Team, spear-headed by CEO-founder, Paul Coley, and comprised of graduates of Florida State University’s Engineering Program.  As a former FBI Forensics Canine Operations Specialist, Coley identified the need for more efficient, portable and reliable methods of collecting uncontaminated scent articles at crime scene investigations and missing person deployments.

The resulting SEKR device was designed to meet the critical needs of crime scene investigators and missing persons responders utilizing years of professional experience in the field.

The SEKR – Scent Collection at it’s Best

Collecting uncontaminated evidence is one of the most difficult problems facing investigators. With The SEKR, scent evidence collection and storage has never been easier or more reliable and was recently utilized on The Mystery and The Mines episode of Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen. Here’s how it works.

The SEKR is specially designed to eliminate scent article contamination. The scent collection hood contains a dual-grate system that holds the scent pad in place. A powerful rechargeable vacuum then pulls scent from evidence at the scene for 1 minute, which is then absorbed by the sterile scent pad. A specially-treated scent jar is securely attached at the bottom of the hood allowing the user to push the scent pad into the jar via the included collection rod. The scent article has not been touched or contaminated by the responder. The jar can then be removed, sealed and labeled.

Scent Discriminate K9 Trailing using The SEKR

The SEKR is powerful enough to collect scent from almost any scene evidence. For example, this image shows the GPS trail results of a recent field test using scent collected with The SEKR from a spent shell casing previously fired by the target. The target path is in blue and the K9 Trailing Team is in red. The results not only demonstrate the power of scent discriminate K9 training but the accuracy that can be achieved when trailing an uncontaminated scent article.Scent Collection from Shell Casing Field Test with SEKR
