Product Details

Capture the most intricate details of footwear impressions using the BioFoam impression system! A criminal must enter and exit a crime scene on foot at some point, even if only for a short distance. Students will enjoy the process of making permanent castings using their own footwear. They then analyze each other’s work and compare those results to the suspect’s footprint from the crime scene to determine a possible match, just like real-world investigators in a crime lab!The classroom set, AP7752, is complete for eight student groups. AP7749 serves as an individual lab kit or demonstration.
