Zurich Forensic Science Institute

Analysis & Assessment

The value of physical and transient evidence is never certain; any such evidence needs to be analysed and interpreted.

Light and electron microscopes, state-of-the-art devices and custom-made software are among the tools available for analysis.

Despite their individual specialities, associates of the Zurich Forensic Science Institute are all familiar with forensic procedures, making it possible for the analysis to be carried out holistically. Investigations are conducted in a neutral, transparent, and detail-oriented manner.

The results and findings of evidence gathering, collection, and analysis are compiled in a report or expert opinion, depending on the job. The expert opinion additionally contains descriptions of the methods applied as well as detailed explanations of the backgrounds leading to that particular evaluation of the results.
