I am the director of the Master of Forensic Science Program at Drexel University College of Medicine. I have a student intrested in conducting research on latent print processing of fired cartridge casings. I am interested in both techniques and processing methodology as well any statistical studies.

Get a hold of a copy of the Book: Proceedings of the International Symposium on Fingerprint Detection and Identification. There is an article there on:"A closer look at the effects of the shooting process on fingerprint development on fired cartridge cases". There are some very interesting and important observations made there regarding cartridge cases fired from semi-automatic weapons.

Research conducted by the US Secret Service has been published in the JFS (Journal of Forensic Science). They tested a gun blue technique that I have used on cartridge casings and other unfinished metallic surfaces.
Anthony Cantu was one of the authors and his contact information should be listed in the IAI membership directory.

i am about to carrying out further research on obtaining fingerprint on spent cartridges. i will like to know where the research was conducted and how many different techniques were tried, and what was the weather conditions like.

Are you still looking for info regarding latent evidence on cartridge cases?
I have a paper on above, the research being caried out by Scientific Support staff at Manchester, England who came to the conclusion that they obtained better results going along the DNA route.
Will send copy if required.

I am a latent examiner researching the recovery of latent evidence on spent cartride casings. I have found abstacts for a number of articles on the subject online but I can't seem to find the full articles. I would be interested in any articles or papers on processing cartridge casings. I would also be interested in anecdotal accounts where identifiable prints were recovered; what process or processes were used, caliber and type of weapon the casing came from. Thank you in advance for any help.
