Forensic Analytical's Forensic Science Division performs ballistics and forensic science using a state-of-the-art scanning electron microscopy equipped with an energy dispersive x-ray analyzer (SEM-EDs). The SEM allows for the determination of shape and size, while the EDS documents the elemental composition of the particles. The automated SEM-EDS system yields timely and accurate reporting of data. This is used in ballistics and forensic science, where gunshot residue analysis used particles analyzed from the firearm, bullet, the shooter's hand, and nearby elements present at a crime scene.
