Infrared analysis can locate hard-to-see bloodstains on dark fabrics. Infrared light energy can often lighten dark fabrics by reflecting infrared light. At the same time, the bloodstains are absorbed by infrared light, making them dark in color. This contrast of lightening dark clothing and darkening stains allows for locating bloodstains with the use of an infrared filter. An example of the importance of infrared light would be to find the victim’s blood on a suspect’s dark clothing. We have infrared light equipment to locate, photograph, and document the bloodstains on dark fabrics.
