Regula has expanded its team by opening a new forensics office in Kyiv, Ukraine, the company announced. The team includes staff at the LAD laboratory, a hub which is on the premises of the Radiotechnical Department of the National Technical University of Ukraine ‘Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute.’ The lab and Regula have already been working together for more than 20 years.
The new Regula Forensics UA office is led by Pavlo Lievyi, who has led hardware and software development for forensic research in magneto-optics.
“One of the latest joint developments of LAD laboratory and Regula is a one of a kind device – magneto-optical hysteresigraph MOHyster Regula 7708, specifically designed to be used in applied research, particularly for the development of new and improvement of currently existing document security features with magnetic properties. We are excited to become a part of Regula family,” said in the announcement Pavlo Lievyi, new director of LLC ‘Regula Forensics UA.’
Regula Forensics UA technology enables non-destructive examinations of metal surfaces for authenticity verification and detection of VIN falsification, including firearms and ammunition identification numbers. The company also develops technology to examine magnetic security features such as banknotes and securities. The technology has already been deployed across multiple countries in Europe, USA, Canada, Brazil, China, Russia, and the Middle East.
