Industry experts Thomas J. Tague Jr., Ph.D., Applications Manager at Bruker Optics, Inc. and David Exline, Senior V.P. at Gateway Analytical discuss the differences of using Infrared and Raman instead of the historically used Optical Microscopy for the analysis of trace evidence.
In this webinar replay, The principles of optical, infrared and Raman microscopy are presented as well as examples of their applicability to trace evidence, including fibers, documents, propellents, and more. A background on condom lubricant trace evidence is also discussed. Special focus is also given to sample preparation and analysis of condom lubricant traces using FTIR. Case studies involving the use of FTIR for determining the presence of condom lubricant traces are also presented.
