METAL Facilitation of Forensics: Analyses to Improve Identification of Homicide Victims

Dropbox Recording

Many of the analytical facilities in METAL are used in chemical and isotopic profiling of human remains to develop a life history of an individual's past diet and residence, helping to lead to identification. Techniques include isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS), inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), and multi-collector inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS).

TEC Talks: Technology, Expertise, Collaboration. The TEC Talks seminar series, presented by ASU Core Facilities, focuses on cutting edge technology and its practical application. The objective is to drive innovation in discovery, from project conception and funding through data analysis and publication. The goal is achieved by addressing scientific problems with customized solutions and fostering collaborations between researchers and core facility scientists.
