West Technology Forensics
West Technology Forensics are leaders in the field of Vacuum Metal Deposition (VMD) cabinets for the development of fingerprints.
VMD has been proven to develop latent fingermarks on aged exhibits, including cold cases. The technique has also provided remarkable results on exhibits that have been submerged in water, buried underground or have been subjected to high temperatures.
VMD is the best technique for a wide range of exhibits, including – but not limited to –flexible plastic packaging, plastic bottles, glass, fabrics, firearms& fired ammunition, wood, glossy paper, thermal paper, polymer & paper bank notes.
