How to accelerate gunshot residue (GSR) analysis in forensic science using SEM

By Rose Helweg - May 28, 2019

Jeroen Smulders, physicist and product manager at Thermo Fisher Scientific, is part of the team that developed the Phenom Perception Gunshot Residue (GSR) Desktop Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). This instrument is the only desktop SEM dedicated to gunshot residue analysis. Forensic scientists use the technique in order to find evidence that a suspect has discharged a firearm. In this interview, Smulders talks about the development history of GSR, explains details and handling of the Phenom Perception GSR Desktop SEM and gives examples for cases in which GSR is applied.
