Field Testing Technologies
The ability to perform rapid identification of biological evidence at point of seizure is an ongoing ambition for enforcement officers. While confirmatory testing in a laboratory is always likely to be needed for forensic casework, a range of technologies now exists that can provide on-the-spot information regarding the species of origin of wildlife products in trade. This workshop will highlight a number of recent technological developments in the area of portable testing solutions for wildlife forensics.
