The Forensic Science teaching laboratory is located in the Business and Information Technology building. This new 100 square metre lab is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation and features 24 units of individual working space located on three double lab bench islands.
In the Forensic Lab, students routinely develop strong practical experience with the following:
- Microscopy techniques (digital, compound, stereo, comparison and polar microscopes);
- Forensic biology instrumentation (real-time PCR, automated genetic analyzer, thermal cycler);
- Forensic chemistry instrumentation (analytical balances, DFO chamber, cyanoacrylate fuming chamber, Glass Refractive Index Measurement (GRIM) system); and
- Miscellaneous forensic equipment (electrostatic detection apparatus, Video spectral comparators, forensic light sources, digital photography equipment, faunal and human osteological specimens).
