Gateway Analytical is an ISO 17025:2005 certified and ASCLD/LAB-International accredited laboratory, focused on providing the highest quality of work for evidence analysis. Our forensic experts have more than 18 years of experience in trace evidence, and even more specifically, gunshot residue analysis. By utilizing techniques such as scanning electron microscopy/energy dispersive spectroscopy (SEM/EDS) we provide critical information on the particle identification and residue analysis of primer components found on articles such as clothing, or skin that can be used to help determine if a subject has fired a gun.
Our trace evidence experts can analyze and report on gunshot residue evidence often within 10 to 15 business days from when the sample is received. We have two automated SEM/EDS instruments to ensure there is no backlog of work and your evidence is handled in a timely manner. Gateway Analytical can also provide expert testimony services if needed.
