Unique to Foster+Freeman, this revolutionary new fingerprint development system was initially designed to reveal fingermarks on fired bullets and IED fragments.

A cutting-edge chemical vapor fuming process to develop fingerprints on a range of difficult surfaces including those that have been exposed to extreme heat (discharged bullet casings, for example) and items that have been washed ‘clean’ in an attempt to prevent identification. 

A Compact Laboratory System

RECOVER semi-automates the complex chemistry required to produce consistently high-quality fingerprints on untreated or cyanoacrylate-fumed items of evidence. Designed, engineered, and refined to provide a simple, low-maintenance solution, RECOVER contains all of the hardware and software components required for fingermark development, within a compact laboratory system.

Fingerprint Fuming Systems

Our latest and most advanced range of cyanoacrylate fuming systems designed and manufactured to guarantee reliable consistent performance.

Typical Applications

 Fired Ammunition

Fired bullet cartridges are notoriously difficult to retrieve ‘usable’ prints from. RECOVER can yield fingerprints of incredibly high quality.

IED Fragments

The original RECOVER application, prints can be visualized on metals exposed to extreme heat, including Improvised Explosive Device (IED) fragments.

Washed Items

Even when an item of evidence has been washed clean, or submerged for an extended period of time, RECOVER can still retrieve identifiable prints.
