In just two seconds, the Safescan 30 counterfeit currency detector pen will tell you whether a banknote is fake or genuine. Simply mark the bill and watch: if the ink turns dark, the note is likely a counterfeit. Perfect wherever you need fast, portable verification, such as at markets and events or in taxis and delivery vans.
The iodine-based ink in the Safescan 30 reacts with a starch found in all standard papers, but not in the official cotton-based or polymer banknote paper used by central banks worldwide. What’s more, it helps take fake money out of circulation: the pale ink will fade away on genuine banknotes, but leave a permanent purple mark on suspected counterfeits.
