Amido Black is an extremely effective protein stain used to enhance faint or nearly invisible bloodstains to a deep blue to black color. Numerous methods of staining are used to develop or enhance blood-contaminated latent prints. These methods depend on staining the protein components of blood to form a more visible impression, commonly a dark blue or black.

Among these methods are Amido Black, LeucoCrystal Violet, Coomassie Blue, and Acid Fuchsin. Amido Black has also been used to develop and enhance footwear and tire track impressions. For this aqueous-based formula, a blood fixative such as 5-Sulfosalicylic Acid #1601 is highly recommended to be used prior to enhancement.
