Title (EN) METHOD FOR RENDERING FINGERPRINTS VISIBLE
(FR) PROCEDE PERMETTANT DE RENDRE VISIBLES DES EMPREINTES DIGITALES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention concerns a method for rendering fingerprint(s) visible by subjecting or exposing the surface of the substrate presumably bearing the fingerprint(s), or at least a corresponding region of said surface, to a fuming agent, under adapted conditions. Said method is characterized in that said fuming agent consists of an agent able to react with the fatty substances of the fingerprints and incorporating an additive substance able to mark a film-like material coated or impregnated with an adapted reactive substance, and in that said method also consists in then placing a portion of such a film-like material in a close position to said surface or surface region and, possibly, submitting said exposed portion of said film-like material to a developing or visualisation process.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé permettant de rendre visibles une ou plusieurs empreintes digitales, en soumettant ou en exposant la surface du substrat supposée porteuse de ces empreintes, ou au moins une zone correspondante de ladite surface, à un agent fumant, dans des conditions adaptées. Le procédé est caractérisé en ce que ledit agent fumant comprend un agent capable de réagir avec les substances grasses des empreintes digitales et renfermant une substance supplémentaire capable de marquer une matière analogue à un film, revêtue ou imprégnée d'une substance réactive adaptée, et en ce que ledit procédé consiste en outre à placer une portion d'une telle matière analogue à un film à un emplacement rapproché de ladite surface ou zone de surface et, éventuellement, à soumettre ladite portion exposée de la matière analogue à un film, à un processus de développement ou de visualisation.
