    Abstract

    The potential for transfer of fiber evidence during the commission of a crime and the use of such evidence in criminal investigations have been well established. One of the accepted methods for collection of fiber evidence is the use of adhesive lifts, generally adhesive tape. A procedure is described for the preparation of adhesive lifts and for a roller device with which these lifts are employed. Use of the roller and lifts can substantially reduce the time associated with the collection of fiber evidence from clothing, bedding, and other items in the laboratory and at crime scenes.
