Forensic investigation in humane matrices

The firm Ducares and KAIN are about to enter into a 4-year partnership agreement with the aim of developing and deploying high-value toxicological analysis methods for forensic investigation on a commercial basis. The primary motivation for this partnership is the ample experience and expertise of Mr Kerkdijk, which he acquired in his former position as head of the NFI toxicological laboratory in Rijswijk.

In the course of this partnership a number of key applications in blood and hair will be developed. The objective is to be able to work more quickly, more effectively and more cheaply than competitors.
Research will also carried out into the finding of “unknowns”. This is currently a major challenge in the field of forensic investigation.
