Getting the best out of Cyanoacrylate fumed marks - Fuming, illumination and imaging techniques 


Cyanoacrylate or 'superglue' fuming is one of the most widely used techniques in forensic fingerprint laboratories worldwide.

First discovered in the late 1970s, the method of heating 'glue' to the point that it evaporates, binding itself to any latent fingermarks, is so simple and effective that there has been very little reason for it to change during the 40+ years it has been in use.

However, while the method of fuming may not have changed, there have been significant advances in the way that we visualise and examine the resulting marks...

IMAGING FINGERMARKS ON BULLET/CARTRIDGE CASINGS


The arrival of Foster+Freeman's new RECOVER LFT technology made it possible for forensic examiners to, for the first time, consistently develop fingermarks on fired ammunition casings.

This discovery led to a new problem - how do you capture/photograph fingermarks on a small, cylindrical, reflective surface.

In this webinar, we'll show you exactly how to utilise different modes of illumination to capture high-quality fingermarks on this notoriously difficult surface.

FINGERMARK RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM


Forensic science practitioners, crime scene examiners, academics and researchers attended a 1-day ‘virtual symposium’ to share in the latest research in Fingermark Detection and Examination.

An opportunity to learn more about new technologies and techniques in the field of forensic fingerprint examination, the seminar presentations will be of great interest to anyone involved in crime scene investigation or forensic laboratory examination.

 

 

Wildlife forensics is a relatively new field of criminal investigation that in many countries lags far behind other fields of forensic science in terms of budget and the availability of manpower, equipment and resources.
 
Because of this, many wildlife forensic professionals will find themselves trying to investigate a diverse variety of scenarios using limited resources, perhaps even using equipment begged, borrowed or stolen from other more established forensic teams.
 
In this website we focus on getting the most out of a limited range of equipment and also in using common forensic tools and instruments, occasionally in unexpected ways, to examine wildlife crimes.

But… how do you ensure that you are using your chosen forensic light source to its maximum potential? And how do you demonstrate to a judge that a forensic science technique is appropriate?

In this webinar, we will be demonstrating how you can get the best out of your Crime-lite forensic light sources and exploring how to use validation samples in the creation of a robust quality assurance process.
