Never rub your forehead again! Originally created for use in our own research and development laboratory, our latent print reference pads create perfect, consistent test latent fingerprints again and again. Before using any latent fingerprint development chemical, a test print should be produced so that the validity and strength of the chemicals can be determined before being used on actual evidence.
In the past, forensic scientists were forced to rely on the residues from their own skin to produce the test prints. Depending on the individual and their state during the day, these prints could vary by a tremendous amount. Now you simply press your finger on the desired pad and the perfect amount of latent print residue is left behind. Latent print development techniques can then be accurately tested and gauged based on this reference standard, regardless of who placed the print.
