Norfolk technology company invited to showcase innovation to Home Office

3 October 2013 - Intelligent Fingerprinting has been invited to present its revolutionary fingerprint-based drug screening technology to the Home Office at a forensic technology event in London on 8 October.


Based at the Norwich Research Park, Intelligent Fingerprinting is one of only six cutting-edge UK organisations invited to take part in the event, which showcases new forensic science, intelligence and counter terrorism technologies to the broader forensic science community including the Home Office and Police.


Dr Paul Yates from Intelligent Fingerprinting said: “This event gives us an excellent opportunity to explain our new drug screening technology to a specialist audience. Unlike conventional drug tests, which require blood or urine samples, our portable testing device is totally non-invasive and works by analysing the sweat in a person’s fingerprint to screen for multiple drugs of abuse in less than ten minutes.  This new process could be a real game-changer in drug abuse screening, cutting time and cost significantly.”


The day will consist of introductory talks from the Home Office Centre for Applied Science and Technology and the Police Service on how innovators can work with public sector bodies, followed by demonstrations from the invited organisations.


The event, backed by the UK’s innovation agency, the Technology Strategy Board, aims to support the Home Office review of Research & Development in forensic science. It is being held at the Ambassadors Hotel, Bloomsbury, London.
