Proposal Title: Non-Contact Device for Latent Fingerprint Capture
Topic Number: H-SB015.1-001
Phase: Phase II
Topic Title: DNA and Latent Fingerprint Collection from Same Sample
Organization: TIAX LLC
Address: 35 Hartwell Avenue
Lexington, MA 02421-3102  
Abstract: TIAX will develop a set of fingerprint treatments (including either chemical or instrumental methods, or a combination of both) that allows accurate collection of latent print images from any of the three main classes of surface (porous, nonporous, and adhesive) without compromising subsequent profiling of DNA that may be present in the print. Treatments identified will be developed into prototype products, validated, and applied to real case work in collaboration with DHS-CBP. Our methodology includes use of a statistically rigorous dose-response method to support claims of non-interference with DNA profiling, as well as an experiment-based rational design process to identify suitable or optimal product formulations and instrument configurations. Independent validation of products and methods will be accomplished through partnership with a DHS laboratory.
