Analyzing Gun Shot Residue (GSR) Using the ASPEX GSR Analyzer SEM System
The use of scanning electron microscopy dates Back in the late 60’s forensic laboratories in London started to use Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM) for the manual detection and analysis of Gun Shot Residue (GSR) particles on a routine basis. Forty years later, SEMs are still used in laboratories world wide for the automated detection of GSR particles. Technological advances, including, the integration of Energy Dispersive Spectrometers for elemental analysis and a software platform for the automated detection, relocation, confirmation and reporting, have made this the go-to technology for elemental analysis and imaging of samples collected from suspect shooters.
