Oil Red O is a lipid stain that is used for enhancing latent prints produced by the lipids commonly found in fingerprints, foodstuffs, oils, cosmetics, or other fatty substances. Oil Red O has been found to be particularly useful in revealing latents on porous surfaces that have been wet.
Compared with physical developer, the Oil Red O technique is much less complex and gives results of impressive clarity and intensity.
We offer our Oil Red O Latent Print Lipid Stain as liquid to make 1 liter of stain or in a powder form to mix your own.
