The presentation will include an overview of latest research project looking at using Forensic VMD to develop fingermarks and touch marks on fabrics. There will also be an introduction of the new Application Guide that provides detailed information on how to process a wide range of non-porous, semi-porous and porous substrates using the forensic VMD process. The guide gives specific advice on the recommended process e.g. gold/zinc, silver, sterling silver, copper and aluminium for each substrate plus helpful tips on how to best hold the substrate in the process chamber, process considerations, post-development imaging etc.
