Macko, Steve. The Advancement of Fingerprint Technology. from http://emernet.emergency.com/fngrtech.htm as an excerpt from ENN Emergency Services Report. Original published on 11 Jun 1997. Vol 1 No 162.

Abstract: Although the old method of dusting for prints and lifting them with adhesive tape is still used by evidence technicians, newer methods are now available that use ultraviolet light, lasers, ans super glue. Computers can now automatically compare prints against millions of others in a database. Pulling prints from difficult surfaces like tissue paper is become more commonplace with new techniques. These new laboratory methods require entire items with possible prints on them to be collected and sent to the lab. New techniques also allow for the separation of prints and elimination of known prints. The article also reviews factors that affect the quality of prints, such as surface type, atmospheric conditions, and human characteristics.
