Fingerprints on foil developed with cyanoacylate

TECHNOLOGY FOR THE DETECTION, CAPTURE & ENHANCEMENT OF FINGERPRINTS

 

Cyanoacrylate fuming

 

First identified as an effective method of enhancing latent fingerprints in the late 1970's, fuming with cyanoacrylate (or superglue) is a technique regularly used by fingerprint experts worldwide.

When in gaseous form, cyanoacrylate will react with traces of amino acids, fatty acids, and proteins in latent fingerprints and the moisture present in the air to produce a visible white residue along the ridges of the fingerprint. Fingerprints that have been fumed with cyanoacrylate can be photographed or subjected to further staining or digital enhancement to increase contrast. 

Foster + Freeman MVC/D fuming cabinets create a safe, sealed environment and the optimum conditions for effective processing of evidence.
