Department of Forensic Medicine
The bioanalytical unit is the Section for Forensic Chemistry’s research and service unit. The unit combines natural science and health science in a number of different research areas centered around bioanalytical chemistry. In addition, the unit acts as a partner in a number of external projects. The unit is equipped with modern analytical equipment that can analyze roughly all small molecules.
If we succeed in developing a sure-fire method to determine the age of a trace, the police will have a tool to determine whether a fingerprint or other trace is relevant to the investigation.
It's very satisfying to be able to bring research into the world that directly means something to people. Whether this is via a close link to biology and healthy aging, or because we develop a new method that can help the police, is less important .
