The Technology Center also has purchased portable versions of Raman, FTIR, 3-D documentation, and x-ray that can be brought to the scene and used to identify unknown substances, assist scene personnel with safety and collection issues, and classify biological materials before laboratory analysis. In addition, the Institute has acquired a footwear database and other instrumentation to search and compare fingerprints, palm prints, cartridge cases or bullets that are on file.
