Why M-Vac


"It's easy to make it work in the lab, but can you make it work in the real world?"  It is the usual when the rubber hits the road type of comment.  In forensics, the twist is that the rubber hits the road in the field and the lab!  And yes, the M-Vac™ works both places; many cases have been solved and many labs have independently researched or validated the M-Vac™. Both areas are springboards to new applications, more understanding, better use and new technology.  The key is innovative people making a difference.

This page includes research that has been done or is currently being done with the M-Vac™ and related technologies.  Some of it is innovative and some of it is foundational.  For researchers interested in exploring new horizons or further defining existing ones, we have a number of projects that would make excellent research opportunities.  Feel free to reach out to us for suggestions.  Here are some of the projects that are underway or have been completed.
