    Abstract

    The ninhydrin method of latent fingerprint development is useful, reliable, and widely accepted [1–3]. This method chemically visualizes protein and amino acid materials, which have been deposited by the friction ridges of the skin, to form a nonvolatile, rather permanent impression.
