In this 35-minute webinar we’ll review 12 forensic case analyses and the techniques used to move them from investigate to solved. Sample types include everything from hair to drugs to explosives. This webinar also covers why FTIR and Raman spectroscopy are highly adopted by forensic teams of all kinds.
When analyzing potentially harmful samples like opioids protecting the user from dangerous exposure is a concern. Raman helps protect users from dangerous materials because it can analyze samples through a container. Raman also requires no sample preparation and is a non-destructive technique so you'll have confidence that your samples integrity remains intact.
Labs that are overrun by trace evidence samples like fibers, paint, and ink, and looking for qualitative and quantitative answers within minutes can turn to FTIR. It's been affectionately called the triage technique because of it's speed and ability to provide users with actionable data.
Both techniques are particularly valuable when analyzing illicit drugs as they are both SWGDRUG/SWGMAT Class A Instrumental methods and can provide prosecutors with the information required in court for closing cases.
