EVISCAN acquires treacherous latent prints from adhesive tapes

Advantage for drug agents: Fingerprints visualized with EVISCAN could expose drug dealers

Parcels, fully wrapped up with adhesive tapes, are common exhibits for forensic laboratories to be analyzed. The simple reason: smugglers try to well package their illegal goods, for example to fool a drug sniffer dog. A piece of adhesive tape, especially its sticky side, can be crucial evidence to identify a drug dealer. Because fingerprints on the sticky side of a tape cannot be removed or smudged they can immediately lead to the person, who has packaged the narcotics.

To support forensics, EVISCAN provides a reliable method that is suitable to examine both, sticky and non-sticky side of adhesive tapes.
