In the series of providing information about availability of latest technology in the field of forensic sciences here is a latest equipment for obtaining Latent prints without using any powder, fumes, chemicals or high intensity light sources( also called Alternate Light Source ALS). Forensic evidence collection techniques are advancing at a tremendous rate. Thermal Fingerprint Developer( TFD-2) is a chemical free method for the development of latent prints on paper items. The TFD-2 is an
THE FORGOTTEN INDIAN PIONEERS OF FINGERPRINT SCIENCE. Many pioneers including Sir Francis Galton, Dr. Henry Faulds, Sir William Herschel, Sir Edward Richard Henry, etc contributed towards advancement of fingerprint science. But the present status of the fingerprint science could not have been achieved without the contribution of two Indian Police Officers, namely Azizul Haque and Hem Chandra Bose. Both these officers were at that time attached to the Anthropometric Bureau under the supervision of  Edward
The word Dermatoglyphics has been derived from ancient Greek language derma=skin and glyph=carving. Therefore, Dermoglyphic is the scientific study of fingerprints, lines, mounts, and shapes of hands. Dermatoglyphics refers to the formation of naturally occurring ridges on certain body parts, namely palms, fingers, soles and toes.

​INTRODUCTION TO FINGERPRINTS A special kind of friction skin is covered on the palmer surface of the hands, fingers and the sole of the feet including toes.  The skin is covered with minute ridges which are raised lines. The nature designed the ridges and furrows in-between two ridges on the hands and feet to prevent  in slipping,  grasping and locomotion. According to Professor Haris Wilder and Mr Burt Wentworth, the ridges are formed by the
QUESTION:- DO IDENTICAL TWINS HAVE IDENTICAL FINGERPRINTS? ANSWER:-  Identical twins  come from the same fertilized egg and share the same genetic blueprint, therefore, they share similar physical and behavioral traits. They are indistinguishable on DNA test. Identical twins may have the identical distribution of fingerprint patterns on their fingers but they do not have matching fingerprints. Fingerprints are largely shaped by a persons DNA and by a variety of environmental forces. The different fingerprint patterns
The term *BIOMETRICS* has been derived from two different words a) *BIO* means life, and b) *METRICS* means measurements. Summing up, we can define Biometrics as measurement of the biological and physiological characteristics. Biometric Identification is any means by which a person can be uniquely identified by evaluating one or more distinguishing biological traits. Unique identifiers include Fingerprints, Hand geometry, Earlobe geometry, Retina scan, Iris scan, Denture's pattern, DNA, Signatures, etc. Of the above biometric

  FINGERPRINTS AND PALMISTRY   What is the relationship between Fingerprints and Palmistry? Do both fingerprints and palmistry convey the same message?   Fingerprint is the impression of the first digit of our fingers on any surface by any medium whatsoever. The fingers, palms and the sole of the foot are covered  with friction skin due to presence of epidermal ridges. Due to the Locard Principle, which states the principle of contact and exchange of
