Fire Investigation

Evidence Recovery

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The recovery of material from fire scenes including the appropriate choice of packaging is of paramount importance. There are a wide variety of packaging materials available, each of which must be fit for purpose in terms of the sample type and subsequent analysis proposed. Similarly a range of extraction techniques exist for the recovery of, for example, ignitable liquid residues from fire debris and the deployment of an individual method relies on a balance between suitability and laboratory practice.
