Fingerprint drugs test receives funding

7th November 2012

Government funding of £425,000 has been made available for drug tests that will be able to detect the substances someone has taken through their fingerprints.

Minister for science and universities David Willetts announced that the funding has been given to Intelligent Fingerprinting Ltd, a firm which originally started at the University of East Anglia. The money is part of £39m of healthcare funding from the Biomedical Catalyst, which will be spent on making advances in how A&E and coroners’ staff detect drugs.
