– Lim Chin Chin
Forensic Science continues to play an increasing role in solving crimes and assisting investigations globally. With the advent of new technologies aimed at improving workflow and increasing sensitivities, new solutions are now available to forensic laboratories to resolve many new and old problems.
This presentation discusses recent scientific advances made in the area of forensic chemistry and questioned document examination. It examines how current forensic techniques can be applied to analyse new types of samples, new techniques can be used to differentiate two seemingly similar samples, as well as address challenges encountered by forensic laboratories. Research focus identified for future progress will be discussed.
