Oxford Instruments Launches its Next Generation Gunshot Residue Analysis System: AZtecGSR

Oxford Instruments, the World’s leading Gunshot Residue analysis system provider, has launched AZtecGSR, its next generation solution for automated GSR analysis in the SEM.

AZtecGSR provides faster, more accurate results to the internationally recognised standard, ASTM E1588 - 10e1.

According to Dr Christian Lang, Solutions Business Manager:

The focus of AZtecGSR has been to dramatically improve the productivity of GSR testing. Each stage of the analysis, from system calibration to the automated conformation and classification of various ammunition types, has been streamlined. Labs can get validated results into a report in a fraction of the time.
