Proposal Title: Non-Contact Device for Latent Fingerprint Capture
Topic Number: H-SB015.1-001
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: DNA and Latent Fingerprint Collection from Same Sample
Organization: TIAX LLC
Address: 35 Hartwell Avenue
Lexington, MA 02421-3102  
Abstract: The Department of Homeland Security is seeking to develop a method for latent print work and DNA analysis from the same sample while optimizing DNA extraction protocol for fingerprints deposited on evidentiary materials used for human identification. Current DNA extraction protocols are highly successful at capturing DNA from prints. However, print lifting methods depend on physical alteration of the print with chemical compounds or powders that may affect DNA profiling. Our approach will be to develop a non-contact method of lifting the print that meets DHS operational requirements, and does not reduce the ability to obtain a profile from DNA extracted from the same print.
