                                               Welcome to 2009

This year is guaranteed to be a year of challenge and we are stepping up ready to meet what is ahead. This year we will
be seeking to put a focus on each edition of RFS News and for this edition it is Magnifiers. We hope you will enjoy the
information we have for you and that being able to see more clearly your items for inspection will make your life easier
and give you better results.
We hope to catch up with many of you during the year in our visits and assist you with your product needs. Don’t forget
our ever changing website - The search field at the top right hand corner of the screen will guide
you to your field of interest.
What’s on this year - Lots of travel and the AINDT Conference in August. Even as you receive this, Joe Buckley from
Sonatest and I are travelling the east coast of Australia with the Rapidscan. Next month we have representatives from
South Africa with the Lo-Rad Se75 close proximity radiography system. Our aim in 2009 is to serve you better and more
professionally than ever before. We are at your service.

                                                     By Susan Pile
On December 10, 2008 Russell and I attended the South Australia
Police Forensic Forum which was held at the University of Adelaide. We
had the privilege of being the only Company invited to showcase our
products which gave us a fantastic opportunity to display to virtually all
of the 130 delegates, something which could be of benefit in their field
of forensic work.

The products we were able to demonstrate include the Lumos X-Loupe
portable microscope camera, Isomark replicating compounds, a range
of Optimax torches from Spectronics and the MaggyCam portable
electronic magnifier. Russell also gave a fascinating demonstration on
how serial numbers which have been filed back on a metal block can be
revealed using magnetic particle inspection.

All of our products generated an immense amount of interest and we
were kept very busy endeavoring to demonstrate everything during the
seminar breaks. Overall the day was very successful for Russell Fraser
Sales. We were able to inform a large number of forensic specialists of
new and exciting technology which will lead to faster and more accurate
results in the many different fields of forensic science.

                                                        Traditionally, operators were forced to attach a torch which

                                                        Not only was this a tricky maneuver, the operator was often
                                                        required to move the angle of the illumination up and down

Pocket Magnifiers
It may seem trivial to feature a $7 magnifier in our
newsletter but not everything that is good has to be
expensive. Our pocket magnifiers are sold in cartons
of 12 and attach to a key ring so you can have light
and vision right with you. The lens gives quality 10X
magnification and folds into a protector when not
in use.
