Study demonstrates effectiveness of ffTA μ-spectrometer for discrimination of microscopic paint s

Completed in-house by Foster + Freeman application specialists, the study sought to distinguish between samples of blue, green and red paints as well as achromatic shades of grey, silver and black.
 
EVESHAM, U.K. - June 6, 2014 - PRLog -- In a short study of 45 automotive paint samples, the Foster + Freeman ffTA with UV-Vis micro-spectrophotometer (MSP) module provided a means of objective colour measurement for the discrimination of visually similar automotive paint samples.

Completed in-house by Foster + Freeman application specialists, the study sought to distinguish between samples of blue, green and red paints as well as achromatic shades of grey, silver and black.

The ffTA is a modular trace evidence analysis system that features a range of analytical facilities on a single microscope operated through a single PC. Modules currently available for the ffTA include Glass RI Measurement (GRIM), 3-wavelength Raman Spectroscopy, Fluorescence Imaging, Image Processing, UV-Vis-IR Microspectrometry (MSP) and Polarised Light Microscopy (PLM).

Foster + Freeman systems for the analysis of forensic trace evidence including glass, gun shot residues, suspect fibres, drugs and accelerants etc. also include the ECCO, Laser Induced Breakdown Spectrometer for the elemental analysis of samples and the Foram range of Raman spectrometers.
