Breaking News - FINGERPRINT TECHNOLOGY ...

By LeeBrowzer 10 Oct 2017

Pioneering fingerprint technology designed by Hallam featured across the BBC.
Dr Simona Francese from the Biomolecular Sciences Research Centre has been speaking about a ground-breaking fingerprint profiling method, developed at Hallam, which can provide an in-depth analysis of fingerprints at crime scenes.

The technology has been on trial with West Yorkshire Police which saw it successfully implemented during an investigation into a case of harassment. The technology can test for traces of drugs, blood, hair and other molecules to provide a bigger picture of the criminal and assist the case.

The Home Office has invested funding in the project and researchers hope to see the technology be used in high-profile cases.

Dr Francese appeared live on BBC Breakfast this morning and was also interviewed on Radio 4's Today Programme (listen again from 02:56:37), Radio 5 Live (listen again from 00:54:57), BBC World Service and regional BBC radio stations across the country.  It also is the most-read story on the BBC website this morning
