Fibres trace evidence can provide information about whether or not there has been physical contact between people, or whether or not someone was present at the crime scene.
The recovery of fibres must take place under carefully controlled conditions to avoid inadvertent transfer of fibres between the suspect’s and the victim’s clothing. Fibres are identified and compared using microscopy and chemical analysis.
The strength of evidence depends upon the number and type of fibres recovered.
For example, to determine who was driving a vehicle at the time of a collision, conclusive evidence can be obtained using our Fibre Plastic Fusion (FPF) technique, which is far more effective than DNA analysis or blood pattern analysis.
