Is Your Laboratory Looking for a 3D Imaging System for Cartridges and Bullets?

The Evofinder® Automated Ballistic Identifications system provides a unique solution for 3D imaging of both bullets and cartridge cases with a high degree of accuracy and speed as well as providing automatic correlations with statistical analysis. The Evofinder® system is uniquely capable in its ability to capture both pristine and deformed evidence in 3D, quickly and accurately.

The Evofinder® incorporates a compact, lightweight, and portable system design that can provide labs with the following advantages:

1. Internal database – The Evofinder® system incorporates an internal database that is maintained within its own server.

2. Virtual Comparison Microscopy – Scanned images can be viewed individually or in comparison for virtual examination, including lighting controls, contrast, and 3D position.

3. Portability – The compact and portable scanner assembly can be taken to field locations to allow for direct entry of samples

4. Configurability – Systems can be configured with scanners and workstations to allow for technical personnel to enter data from multiple locations and examiners to separately review from expert workstations

5. Auto-Comparison – Evofinder® software can automatically provide statistical recommendations of possible matched samples within minutes in addition to possible use as a sorting tool for large sample sets.

Built with advanced manufacturing sciences and modern computer technologies the Evofinder® provides:

  • High quality images
  • Fast imaging processing *
  • Highly effective correlated searches
  • Ability to examine and compare images directly
  • Streamlined interface
  • Easy usage
  • Robust design
  • Compact size and light weight for portability

* Scanning of a 3D image of the side of a bullet (pristine bullet, caliber 9 mm), or the 3D bottom surface of a cartridge case (10 mm diameter) can be completed in less than 3 minutes.

Leeds LCF3, a robust and powerful firearms and tool marks comparison microscope, offers outstanding performance, ergonomic comfort, and incredible versatility in analyzing ballistics and cartridge casings.

Recovering Latent Fingerprints from Cadavers

IN A HOMICIDE CASE, the recovery of latent impressions from a body is just one more step that should be taken in the process of completing a thorough search. This article is directed at crime-scene technicians and the supervisors who support and direct evidence-recovery operations both in the field and in the controlled settings of the medical examiner’s office or the morgue under the coroner’s direction.
