Fibre transfer evidence can be used in an attempt to associate an individual to a particular crime by way of undertaking examinations of various items including clothing, bedding, and car seats.
Examples of cases involving fibre transfer include:
•    Examination of the clothing of murder victim to ascertain if fibres from a suspect’s clothing are present, and of course vice versa
•    Comparison of fibres recovered from a burglary scene (snagged on broken glass or a ragged surface at the point of entry for example) with the clothing of a suspect.
•    Fibre transfer investigation in an attempt to associate an individual with the driver’s seat of a stolen vehicle

The interpretation of the scientific findings can be very subjective and is dependent on a significant number of features and issues that require to be addressed.

Forensic Assessment can undertake a complete and thorough review of fibre transfer evidence to include undertaking our own examination of the items, interpretation of findings in light of the circumstances of a particular case, and preparation of a comprehensive expert report.
