No single technique is outstanding in its performance, each has advantages and disadvantages. In fact, Wouters (63) states the need for further development of colorant identification procedures that address issues raised by currently used methods. Since the concentration of dye on a fiber is relatively small, colorant identification requires the identification of a very small quantity on a material whose sample size is very limited. In addition, some methods employed require dissolution of the material, which breaks dye-mordant complexes and thus might cause some alteration that would affect identification.
