Forensic institutes worldwide

There are many forensic institutions around the world to promote (development) quality, the advancement of science and exchange. Through organized associations, it is possible for the members of the various subject areas to exchange views on the latest problems and to inform themselves about new developments in research. For the continuous development of scientific standards, there are world-renowned organizations that face the challenges of forensics in order to contribute to general forensic education.

EAFS – European Academy of Forensic Science

The “European Academy of Forensic Science Conference”, in short EAFS, is the biggest meeting for forensic scientists, experts and those, who are interested in the field of forensic science.
The conference ist organized by the EAFS Committee and the “European Network of Forensic Science Institutes” (ENFSI). This year’s conference will be held from the 27th to 31st August in the convention centre of Lyon in France and is hosted by the “Institut national de la Police Scientifique”. EVISCAN and ist technology was presented already in ist early stage at th EAFS2015. This practical feedback enters into every new development of our product EVISCAN.


IAFS stands for International Association of Forensic Science, which is a chance for forensic scientists, police experts and people from other forensic science branches to talk about their experiences and ideas, so as learn about new technologies and possibilities in the field of forensic.

Latent Fingerprints on Wet Surfaces

It is hard to find latent fingerprints on wet surfaces with common chemicals like powders without destroying the prints by letting the surface dry first. Therefore, another method needs to be used- SPR Spray. A spray containing small particles that stick to the secretions in a fingerprint eventhough the surface is wet.

Vacuum Metal Deposition

The vacuum metal deposition is divided into several process steps. At first, the exhibit is put into a high-vacuum cabin. There, gold particles are evaporated onto the exhibit. These particles stick to the exhibit only, but not at all to the fingerprint: The skin fat of the fingerprint prevents the particles from sticking to the surface.
