2018 IPTES: Trace Evidence Breakout - Day 2 PM
IPTES was designed to bring together practitioners and researchers to enhance information-sharing and promote collaboration among the impression, pattern, and trace evidence analysts, law enforcement, and legal communities.
Original Live Webinar took place on 01/25/2018. The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and the Forensic Technology Center of Excellence (FTCoE) are committed to improving the practice of forensic science and strengthening its impact through support of research and development, rigorous technology evaluation and adoption, effective knowledge transfer and education, and comprehensive dissemination of best practices and guidelines to agencies dedicated to combating crime. The future of forensic sciences and its contribution to the public and criminal justice community is a motivating topic to gather expertise in a forum to discuss, learn, and share ideas. - Trace Evidence Breakout: Day 2 PM - Swab Touch Spray Mass Spectrometry for Rapid Analysis of Organic Gunshot Residue from Human Hand and Various Surfaces Using Commercial and Fieldable Mass Spectrometry Systems - Patrick Fedick, BS, Purdue University Evaluation of Field-Portable GC-MS with SPME Sample Collection for Investigator Use at Fire Scenes - John DeHaan, PhD, Fire-Ex Forensics, and Zachary Lawton, MS, PerkinElmer, Inc.
