    Forensic equipment

    Physical Forensic Tools:

    1. Hand Gloves: To prevent contamination of evidence.
    2. Tweezers: For picking up small physical evidence.
    3. Sterile Containers: For safe transportation of evidence.
    4. Crime Scene Barrier Tape: To keep unauthorized people out of the crime scene.
    5. Fingerprint brushes:
    6. Fingerprint Powder: Used to develop latent fingerprints on smooth surfaces.
    7. Magnifying Glass: To closely examine smaller evidence.
    8. Alternate Light Source (ALS): Useful for identifying traces of blood, fiber, and other elements.

    Chemical, Biological, and Trace Evidence Tools:

    9. Swabs: For gathering biological samples.
    10. Biological & Chemical test kits: To identify or analyze biological samples or chemical substances.
    11. Ultraviolet (UV) light: To detect biological substances invisible to the naked eye.
    12. Microscope: For examining minute details of specific types of evidence, such as hair or fiber.
    13. Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry Instruments: For analyzing chemical substances.

    General and Advanced Equipment:

    14. Casting Materials: To preserve and study footprints or tire tracks.
    15. Forensic Light Sources: To detect latent fingerprints, trace evidence.
    16. 3D Scanners and Drones: For a complete and detailed representation of complex crime scenes.

    Digital Forensic Tools:

    17. Forensic Computers: Computers equipped with software for digital and data analysis.
    18. Write Blockers: Devices that allow the forensic computers to read data from a seized hard drive without altering any data.
    19. Forensic Imaging Devices: To create a bit-for-bit copy of the data without altering any data.
    20. Mobile Device Forensics Tools: To retrieve data from mobile devices.
    21. Digital Camera: For documenting the crime scene.
    22. Encryption Decryption tools: These tools help in retrieving data that has been encrypted.
    23. Network Forensics Tools: These tools assist in capturing, recording, and analyzing network events to discover the source of security attacks or other problem incidents.
    24. Email Analysis Tools: They help forensic investigators to analyze and recover emails of different formats.
