GL Scanner

The GL scanner is a high resolution (1046 dpi – dots per inch) instrument capable of recording fine detail from fingerprint and footwear marks that allows forensic comparisons to be made.

To produce an image of similar quality a 155 -megapixel camera would be needed to capture the same image with a resolution of 1000 dpi.

CSI’s are able to ‘lift’ fingerprint and footwear impressions using Gel Lifters. The ‘lifts’ are packaged and forwarded on to the Unit who can produce images to search within the fingerprint / footwear database.
