What's included

Protect against theft and vandalism — retail locations, banks, pharmacies, industrial facilities

Box units incorporate an aerosol containing SmartDNA. Each canister contains a unique DNA code with 35 ml of liquid available to be sprayed in multiple activations onto the criminal(s) over a period of up to 8 seconds forensically linking criminal(s) to the crime scene.



• The spray is water-based and is completely safe and non-hazardous having been fully tested for safety by toxicologists.
• Under ambient lighting conditions the spray is colourless and does not visibly mark items.
• Under long-wave UV light, the spray is clearly visible with a bright red colour which cannot be confused with other fluorescent colours which occur naturally such as blue and yellow.
• The spray is ejected from the nozzle in a cone or wide-angle pattern.
• Ideal for use as a standalone unit linked to a push button trigger and/or sensor. Trigger using an external device (e.g., PIR, panic alarm, motion sensor, break glass sensor or tamper button).
• The Box unit is exceptionally small, measuring just 180 x 75 x 40 mm.
• Box is powered by 12 V DC.
