Gas spectroscopy equipment for forensic field analysis

The goal of the project is to develop a prototype for indicative field analysis of gases for forensic applications. This prototype will also be verified both in a lab environment and in the field or in a field-like setting. The product that will follow after the project is a hand-held analysis device that can be used by
first-responders on crime scenes. This will facilitate and speed up the evidence collection as well as potentially contribute to a more efficient crime investigation process. By quick and reliable identification of gases we expect to be able to perform new kinds of forensic investigations and add more dimensions to crime scene analysis.

The project is financed by the strategic innovation programme "Smartare Elektroniksystem", which is a joint venture by Vinnova, Formas and Energimyndigheten. The work is done in cooperation between RISE Acreo AB, Nyfors Teknologi AB, Serstech AB and The Swedish Police, National Forensic Centre.
