Forensic Investigation in ChemistsHands

Do we need a chemist at the crime scene? What kind of experiments do they do there and what needs to be taken to the lab? Do the methods and techniques of disclosure used by forensic chemistry experts look exactly the way we see them in popular crime series and movies? And how can chemical expertise help catch a perpetrator? During the show, two forensic chemists will answer these questions and explain how chemistry can help police, law enforcement agencies, a court, or lawyers in disclosing and analysing the evidence. We will show you the techniques of dusting for fingerprints, identifying blood traces, footprints, and gunshot residues. We will make experiments and provide you with essential knowledge and trivia.

The schedule of the show and the reservation form can be found here: Fundacji Pro Chemia.
