Foster + Freeman announce further innovations in fingerprint detection
Foster + Freeman announce further innovations in fingerprint detection

  A novel fingerprint dusting powder developed by Foster & Freeman is proving to have successful applications where existing treatments produce less than adequate results. Spirulina, a substance extracted from naturally occurring algae, is non-toxic and fluoresces brightly in the infrared and once ground to a fine powder, is ideal for dusting fingerprints. Most luminescent powders emit visible fluorescence which may not...

Study: Discrimination of methamphetamine precursors
Study: Discrimination of methamphetamine precursors

Ephedrine and pseudoephedrine have long been available in cold remedies as a decongestant. They are also common precursor materials from which illicit methamphetamine may be synthesized. On a global scale, methamphetamine is one of the worlds most consumed synthetic stimulant drugs and its prevalence owes itself, in part, to the relative ease in which it can be manufactured. For this...

Study: Hyperspectral imaging for the discrimination of gel pen inks
Study: Hyperspectral imaging for the discrimination of gel pen inks

    The growing popularity of gel ink pens has, over the past 15 years, presented questioned document examiners with a unique challenge as existing techniques, developed for the analysis of traditional ink pens and the ubiquitous biro, fail to discriminate between the complex gel polymer/dye mixtures used in gel pens.   A Japanese innovation introduced in the late 1990s, the significant difference between...
