21. A METHODOLOGY FOR DETECTING RESIDUAL PHOSPHORIC ACID IN POLYBENZOXAZOLE FIBERS
Topic: Forensics
Published: 11/24/2009
Authors: Eun S. Park, John R Sieber, Charles Martin Guttman, Kirk D Rice, Kathleen M. Flynn, Stephanie S Watson, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: There is great interest in the degradation of ballistic fibers from exposure to sunlight and high humidity, because it directly affects the lives of people who use protective ballistic armor. However, to date, no mechanism has been found to explain ...

22. A Coherent Approach for Interrogating Polybenzoxazole Fibers for Residual Phosphoric Acid
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7573
Topic: Forensics
Published: 9/17/2009
Authors: Gale Antrus Holmes, Eun S. Park, Charles Martin Guttman, Kathleen M. Flynn, John R Sieber, Stephanie S Watson, Kirk D Rice
Abstract: Because of the premature failure of soft-body armor that contains the active fiber poly [(benzo-[1,2-d:5,4-d‰]-benzoxazole-2,6-diyl)-1,4-phenylene] (PBO), the Office of Law Enforcement Standards (OLES) at the National Institute of Standards and Techn ...

23. A New 26plex Autosomal STR Assay to Aid Human Identity Testing*(dagger)
Topic: Forensics
Published: 9/1/2009
Authors: Carolyn R Steffen, John M Butler, Peter M Vallone
Abstract: Multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has become the standard in forensic testing. Currently there are two commercial multiplex PCR amplification kits available that simultaneously amplify 16 short tandem repeat (STR) loci that include the 13 FB ...

24. The Internal Fluid Mechanics of Explosive Trace Detectors using Computational Fluid Dynamics
Series: OTHER
Topic: Forensics
Published: 5/1/2009
Authors: Matthew E Staymates, Wayne Smith, John G Gillen
Abstract: Efforts are underway in the Surface and Microanalysis Science Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology to study the vapor transport mechanisms inside explosive trace detection instruments (ETD s) and produce standard test materi ...

25. Demonstration of Rapid Multiplex PCR Amplification Involving 16 Genetic Loci
Topic: Forensics
Published: 12/1/2008
Authors: Peter M Vallone, Carolyn R Steffen, John M Butler
Abstract: Current forensic DNA typing is conducted in approximately eight to ten hours with steps including DNA extraction, quantitation, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of multiple short tandem repeat (STR) loci, capillary electrophoresis separa ...

26. Characterization of 26 miniSTR loci for improved analysis of degraded DNA samples
Topic: Forensics
Published: 1/25/2008
Authors: Carolyn R Steffen, Margaret C Kline, Michael Coble, John M Butler
Abstract: An additional 20 novel mini-short tandem repeat (miniSTR) loci have been developed and characterized to aid in the analysis of degraded DNA samples. These new markers produce short PCR products in the target range of 50 150 base pairs (bp) by movi ...

27. Concordance Study Between the AmpFlSTR((R)) MiniFiler(TM) PCR Amplification Kit and Conventional STR Typing Kits
Topic: Forensics
Published: 7/25/2007
Authors: Carolyn R Steffen, Margaret C Kline, Julio J Mulero, Robert E Lagace, Chien-Wei Chang, Lori K Hennessy, John M Butler
Abstract: The AmpFlSTR MiniFiler PCR Amplification kit developed by Applied Biosystems enables size reduction on eight of the larger short tandem repeat (STR) loci amplified in the Identifiler kit, which will aid recovery of information from highly degraded D ...
