Microtraces and body fluids

Textile fibres may be transferred during contact between two people or a person and an object. When glass breaks, the immediate surroundings are blanketed in countless tiny glass shards. Biological evidence can be visible (e.g. blood) or invisible to the naked eye (e.g. dander). The Microtraces and Body Fluids Unit specialises in the evaluation of this type of evidence, which encompasses far more than a DNA profile.
