Latent Fingerprint on Human Skin: A Silent Diagnosis

  title={Latent Fingerprint on Human Skin: A Silent Diagnosis},
Also, there is impact of location on the latent fingerprint development as porous surfaces (Human skin, paper, fabric, unfinished wood, etc.) are more difficult as compared to nonporous surfaces (Glass, plastic, finished wood etc.). In the past, powder dusting, ninhydrin dipping, iodine fuming and silver nitrate soaking were the most commonly used techniques for latent print development. These traditional techniques are quite effective for many surfaces. However, these traditional methods for…

The Development of Dusting Method for Dragon Fruit Peel as Fingerprint Visualization
The most dominant fingerprint patterns based on ethnicity, blood group, and gender were the loop pattern, then the whorl, and the smallest arch, respectively, which resulted in poor visualization on the paper surface.


Fingerprint recovery from human skin surfaces.
Lifting Fingerprints from Skin Using Silicone
The findings indicate that the enhancement of fingerprints on skin showed the best results using magnetic powder, that it is possible to get fingerprints after up to 43 hours, and that it was possible to locate a fingerprint at body surface temperatures between 21°C and 48°C.
A Conventional Method for Lifting Latent Fingerprints from Human Skin Surfaces
Because the perpetrator of a physical offense often places his hands on the victim during the commission of the crime, the successful recovery of identifiable latent finger, palm, or other prints
Fingerprint Recovery from Human Skin by Finger Powder
An examination experiment has been carried out to investigate whether fingerprint powder and lifting technique can recover and transfer latent fingerprints from human skin surfaces of dead bodies and using traditional investigative approaches with modern methods and "state of the art" tools.
Enhancing the Quality of Aged Latent Fingerprints Developed by Superglue Fuming: Loss and Replenishment of Initiator
Two print enhancement agents, acetic acid and ammonia, are demonstrated to improve the growth of polymer from the print ridges by over an order of magnitude, while retaining the integrity of the print structure.
Recovery of Latent Fingerprints and DNA on Human Skin *
Abstract:  The project “Latent Fingerprints and DNA on Human Skin” was the first systematic research in Europe dealing with detection of fingerprints and DNA left by offenders on the skin of corpses.
Identification of Fingerprints Left on Human Skin
In a trial series using a modified iodine fume method fingerprints left on human skin were lifted successfully from the skin surface of both live volunteers and cadavers under controlled temperature and time conditions.
