Jack and Larry began testing CyanoPowder products in the spring of 2012. Together, they have been involved in testing the powdered cyanoacrylate reagent to determine the optimal quantities of reagent and optimal reaction conditions [temperatures, times, relative humidity] in cyanoacrylate Processing Chambers and make-shift processing chambers. They have utilized various items of mock evidence; evaluating the quality of the development and using various powders and fluorescent dyes to visualize the developed prints and assess CyanoPowder's effectiveness.
