Police and Other Investigative Departments
At Forensic Science & WildLife Matters, we have extensive experience assisting police and other investigative departments through a range of forensic science services.
Very few independent forensic scientists in Australia are proficient in both DNA and trace evidence. With over 35 years of experience, Dr. Silvana Tridico is highly accomplished in this field and has contributed to a number of peer-reviewed publications.
Silvana has also frequented the FBI training academy in Quantico to represent Australia’s interest concerning the process of forensic examinations of trace evidence. She was involved from the beginning of DNA profiling in South Australia in the early 1990s.
At Forensic Science & WildLife Matters, we examine and compare trace materials that may have transmitted between people, objects or the environment during a crime.
Human or animal hair, textile fibres and fabric, bloodstain patterns and rope are only a few examples of trace evidence and can reveal a great deal about the details of a crime.
In relation to DNA profiling, we can review the results or re-examine and interpret findings obtained by other forensic scientists or practitioners.
