From: Novel C stain-based chemical method for differentiating real and forged fingerprints

S. No.CombinationsProcedure
1.1Powder method followed by C stainFirst activated charcoal powder applied on latent prints and then C stain was applied
1.2C stain followed by powder methodC stain method was applied on latent prints followed by activated charcoal powder
1.3Ninhydrin followed by C stainLatent prints developed by ninhydrin followed by C stain application
1.4C stain followed by ninhydrinApplication of C stain method on latent prints and then ninhydrin method was used
1.5AgNO3 followed by C stainDevelopment of latent prints with AgNO3 followed by application of C stain method
1.6C stain followed by AgNO3C stain method applied on latent prints and then AgNO3 was used for development
1.7Iodine fuming followed by C stainDevelopment of latent prints by iodine fumes followed by application of C stain
