Ninhydrin is an extremely sensitive method for developing latent prints on paper documents, letters, newspaper, envelopes, wrapping paper, checks, and other porous objects at a crime scene. Ninhydrin reacts to the proteins and amino acids found in fingerprints. In addition to our premixed liquids, we offer premeasured concentrate to mix your own Ninhydrin.
Our Ninhydrin Traditional Premeasured Concentrate is used by adding the concentrate to 1 liter of solvent. Most commonly, this solvent will be acetone or methanol.
Our Ninhydrin HFE-7100-Based Premeasured Concentrate is used by adding the concentrate to 1 gallon of HFE-7100.
