Criminal Investigation

The application of stable isotope analysis in the criminal forensics brings unique capabilities to the modern day crime laboratory. Harnessing the power of the unique stable isotope fingerprint makes it possible to determine similarities between different drug seizures and so follow trafficking routes back to their original clandestine source. The same principle can be applied to other criminal materials such as explosives or counterfeit money and goods. Stable isotopes can also be utilised to put unidentified corpses in to geographical context by comparing the stable isotope fingerprint of hair, bone, tooth and nails with known databases to evaluate the life history of the victim.
