41. Reliability of Ion Mobility Spectrometry for Qualitative Analysis of Complex, Multicomponent Illicit Drug Samples
Topic: Forensics
Published: 3/20/2011
Authors: Jennifer R Verkouteren, Jessica L Staymates
Abstract: Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) has been used for trace analysis of illicit drugs, but it can also provide reliable qualitative analysis of bulk forensic drug items, despite the complexity of these samples. The drug/drug and drug/excipient combinati ...

45. Strategies for Potential Age Dating of Fingerprints through the Diffusion of Sebum Molecules on a Non-porous Surface
Topic: Forensics
Published: 7/17/2015
Authors: Shinichiro Muramoto, Edward Ryan Sisco
Abstract: Age dating of fingerprints can have a significant impact in forensic science, as it has the potential to facilitate the judicial process by assessing the relevance of a fingerprint found in a crime scene. However, no reliable method currently exists ...
