Latent fingerprints on fabrics visualized by VMD

We regularly hear from our customers that there’s more research needs to be done on VMD. We’ve listened!

West Technology Forensics is proud to present a new scientific research article titled “Visualization of Latent Fingerprints on Fabrics Using Vacuum Metal Deposition” which has been written by our Forensic Scientist, Anita Horvath.

The article has been published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Forensic Identification (JFI) Vol. 72 No. 3. It details the use of different metals and metal combinations within the Vacuum Metal Deposition technique in connection with the detection of fresh and aged latent fingerprints on fabrics.

Read the abstract here.

The article can be accessed through the website of the International Association for Identification.

If you have any questions or feedback regarding the article, feel free to get in touch with Anita by sending her an email.
