    Farrugia, Kevin J.; Bandey, Helen; Savage, Kathleen; Nic Daéid, Niamh (Elsevier, 2013-03)
    Enhancement of footwear impressions, using ninhydrin or ninhydrin analogues is not considered common practice and such techniques are generally used to target amino acids present in fingermarks where the reaction gives ...
  • Chemical enhancement of footwear impressions in urine on fabric 

    Farrugia, Kevin J.; Bandey, Helen; Bleay, Steve; NicDaéid, Niamh (Elsevier, 2012-01)
    A range of chemical techniques were utilised for the enhancement of footwear impressions deposited on a variety of fabric types of different colours with urine as a contaminant. A semi-automated stamping device was used ...
  • Chemical enhancement of soil based footwear impressions on fabric 

    Farrugia, Kevin J.; Bandey, Helen; Dawson, Lorna; Nic Daéid, Niamh (Elsevier, 2012)
    This study investigates the enhancement of footwear impressions prepared with soils from different locations on a variety of fabric surfaces with different morphology. Preliminary experiments using seventeen techniques ...
  • Chemical enhancement of soil-based marks on nonporous surfaces followed by gelatin lifting 

    Hammell, Louise; Deacon, Paul; Farrugia, Kevin J. (International Association for Identification, 2014-11)
