In forensics, latent fingerprints are marks left at the scene of a crime which may not be immediately visible to the naked eye. To expose latent fingerprints, technicians use fingerprint powder, fuming, and other techniques. Identifying latent fingerprints is an important part of evidence collection, and many technicians specialize in retrieving fingerprints from crime scenes and analyzing them in a lab in order to assist law enforcement with apprehending criminals. |
Gaseous pollutants are a lot like latent fingerprints. Identifying odors from chemicals can be difficult. Often an odor or harmful chemical gas becomes airborne in an office, building, school or industrial facility and the immediate source is unknown or cannot be identified simply by smell. In these cases it is very important to be able to identify the chemical compound so anyone exposed can be properly treated and to ensure that any materials or other chemical suppressants used will not exacerbate the problem.
In order to properly identify the chemical culprit various testing devices are used. A trace gas analyzer is often employed as it can detect trace amounts (ppm & ppb) of up to 125 different gases. Other methods can also be employed. In any case, once the gaseous pollutant has been identified the next steps are to remove the source and remove the airborne gaseous pollutant.
