Improve Your Court Testimony on Latent Prints

In the last five years latent print analysis has been challenged as a forensic science in and outside of the courtroom. While research into the reliability of latent print analysis is ongoing, NIJ’s Forensic Technology Center of Excellence is hosting a new online course to better prepare latent print examiners for their court testimony.

How Reliable is the Analysis of Bloodstain Evidence?

Through the National Criminal Justice Reference Service, NIJ has made available a final technical report (this report is the result of an NIJ-funded project but was not published by the U.S. Department of Justice), “Reliability Assessment of Current Methods in Bloodstain Pattern Analysis.”

Latest NIST Mass Spectral Library: Expanded Coverage, Features

The world’s most widely used and trusted resource for identifying mass spectra, the “fingerprints” of molecules, has undergone a major expansion, according to its managers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). NIST 14, containing the newest edition of the NIST/EPA/NIH Mass Spectral Library, boasts significantly increased coverage within each of its three components: the NIST/EPA/NIH Mass Spectral Library of electron ionization (EI) spectra, the NIST Tandem Mass Spectral Library, and the NIST Library of GC Methods and Retention Index Data. These updated libraries were recently released to more than 30 distributors worldwide.
