Latent Fingerprint Detection with SYPRO® Rose Plus Protein Blot Stain

Lanthanide complexes are employed in photoluminescence detection of fingerprints because their long luminescence lifetimes allow use of time-resolved imaging techniques to suppress problematic background fluorescence. To date, however, these complexes have been unsuccessful when used in developing old fingerprints on porous substrates. SYPRO® Rose Plus Protein Blot Stain remedies this shortcoming; it lends itself to smooth surfaces as well, thus having potential as a universal fingerprint reagent.
