Cracking Bath Salt Composition This article will provide examples of the use of Direct Deposition GC-FTIR technology in the forensics environment, including demonstration of the Direct Deposition GC-FTIR instrument’s ability to deal with large volumes of samples, while highlighting the specificity of the technology by differentiating typical street drug isomers.
VPP, OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program: Part 1 A robust health and safety management program can benefit any workplace no matter how large or small. Recognizing this, OSHA developed an assistance program called VPP for Voluntary Protection Program.
Cutting Class In one published report, the Consumer Product Safety Commission statistics indicated that nearly 40% of all medically treated injuries due to manual tools in the United States involved knives or retractable blades.
Comprehensive Analysis of the Chemical Enhancement of Footwear Marks on Fabrics The UK Home Office Centre for Applied Science and Technology (CAST), in collaboration with the Centre for Forensic Science (CFS) at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland, worked together on a strategic research project to evaluate existing chemical enhancement techniques for their applicability to footwear enhancement for marks made in blood, urine, and soil on various fabric surfaces.
Utilization of Infrared and Raman Micro-Spectroscopy for the Chemical Analysis of Art While infrared and Raman microscopy have been employed for many years in the field, new capabilities, such as the employment of FPA detectors and ATR immersion optics in the infrared and confocal depth profiling, fluorescence reduction, and SERS for Raman, have dramatically improved the ability of infrared and Raman microscopes to be used in the increasingly challenging area of art analysis.
Forensic Laboratory 2030: Physical Environment The Forensic Laboratory 2030 research findings indicate the need to accommodate change in the laboratory environment is on a parallel track with unprecedented advancements in technology. The challenge will be to maintain critical adaptability measures to meet the space needs of the future.
