Smytec have performed validation & verification testing against common fingerprint retrieval powders, with assistance from fingerprint examiners from Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. BlindSite greatly outperforms fingerprint powders:

To corroborate these results, Smytec performed an AFIS-validation study which found that 96% of fingermarks recovered with BlindSite provided a “match”
