Gunshot Residue (GSR) analysis plays an important role in determining if a firearm has been used. GSR tests can make use of a scanning electron microscope (SEM) to scan the sample and identify suspect GSR particles. The Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) technique is used to identify if gunshot residue elements like e.g. lead (Pb), Antimony (Sb), and barium (Ba) are present in the sample.
Because the system is automated, it enables you to speed up the forensic analysis process. The Phenom Perception GSR makes gun-shot residue analysis on-demand, faster, easier, and more reliable than ever before. Perfect for every busy GSR forensics lab that wants to save time and floor space.
