Sisters-in-Crime will tour the lab, learning about the collection, preservation, and analysis of crime scene evidence. Functions of the crime lab include:

• Forensic Biology-analysis of body fluids / genetic material used for identification purposes
• DNA
• Fingerprints
• Impression evidence, including footwear and tire tracks
• Firearms evidence
• Toolmarks- comparison of a specific weapon/tool to evidence found at the crime scene
• Trace Chemistry- analysis of gunshot residue, fire debris, tape, textile fibers, metals, etc.
• Toxicology- analysis of biological fluids for the presence of drugs/alcohol/poison

We will meet several experts across various disciplines with ample opportunities to ask questions. A maximum of 30 people may attend so you MUST sign up in advance to ensure your spot.

Please RSVP on this page.

The Crime Lab address/location is available through the chapter's yahoo group listserv.
