DNA recovery from latent fingermarks treated with an infrared fluorescent fingerprint powderal Oleiwi, Abdulrahman; Hussain, Imtiaz; McWhorter, Allyce; King, Roberto S.P.; Sutton, Raul (Elsevier, 2017-05-18)The effect of the infrared fluorescent fingermark visualisation powder, fpNatural 1TM, on the recovery of both the quantity and quality of touch DNA from fingerprints deposited on glass slides, was investigated using qPCR and STR typing. Four donors each deposited replicate marks, which were either left untreated (n = 5) or treated by dusting with fpNatural 1TM (n = 5). Each sample was swabbed using the double swab technique, before being extracted using the EZNA Forensic DNA kit and then DNA quantitated before being subjected to DNA profile analysis. Results showed that there was no significant effect of fpNatural 1TM on either the quantity or quality of recovered DNA. This suggests that fpNatural 1TM may prove a good choice of powder for regular use at crime scenes or in the laboratory. The fpNatural 1TM properties of low density, water immiscibility and low DNA affinity may account for these positive outcomes.
Development of high-performance liquid chromatographic fingerprints for distinguishing Chinese Angelica from related umbelliferae herbs.Lu, Guang-Hua; Chan, Kelvin C.; Liang, Yi-Zeng; Leung, Kelvin Sze-Yin; Chan, Chi-Leung; Jiang, Zhi-Hong; Zhao, Zhong-Zhen (Elsevier, 2005)A high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) fingerprint of Chinese Angelica (CA) was developed basing on the consistent chromatograms of 40 CA samples (Angelica sinensis (Oliv.) Diels). The unique properties of this HPLC fingerprints were validated by analyzing 13 related herbs including 4 Japanese Angelicae Root samples (JA, A. acutiloba Kitagawa and A. acutiloba Kitagawa var. sugiyame Hikino), 6 Szechwan Lovage Rhizome samples (SL, Ligusticum chuanxiong Hort.) and 3 Cnidium Rhizome samples (CR, Cnidium officinale Makino). Both correlation coefficients of similarity in chromatograms and relative peak areas of characteristic compounds were calculated for quantitative expression of the HPLC fingerprints. The amount of senkyunolide A in CA was less than 30-fold of that in SL and CR samples, which was used as a chemical marker to distinguish them. JA was easily distinguished from CA, SL and CR based on either chromatographic patterns or the amount of coniferyl ferulate. No obvious difference between SL and CR chromatograms except the relative amount of some compounds, suggesting that SL and CR might have very close relationship in terms of chemotaxonomy. Ferulic acid and Z-ligustilide were unequivocally determined whilst senkyunolide I, senkyunolide H, coniferyl ferulate, senkyunolide A, butylphthalide, E-ligustilide, E-butylidenephthalide, Z-butylidenephthalide and levistolide A were tentatively identified in chromatograms based on their atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI) MS data and the comparison of their UV spectra with those published in literatures.
