This paper describes the Canadian National Field Trials comparing 1,8- diazafluoren-9-one (DFO), ninhydrin and the sequence DFO followed by ninhydrin. The solutions were used to process casework exhibits in three RCMP and one OPP Forensic Identification Sections located across the country. The sequence DFO followed by ninhydrin recovered the highest number of latent fingermarks.
