GoEvidence Forensic Laboratories is the only private forensic laboratory in North America offering Vacuum Metal Deposition (VMD).

Vacuum Metal Deposition (VMD)

VMD remains one of the most powerful latent fingerprint development techniques available to the modern forensic scientist. We have VMD chambers up to 48" x 65". Chambers are also available for research projects.

The technique of Vacuum Metal Deposition (VMD) where tiny amounts of gold and zinc metallic thin film coatings are evaporated onto flexible non-porous substrates such as polythene packaging film was first developed by the UK Home Office, Police Scientific Development Branch in the 1970's.
