Forensic science: "the glove box", a tool of the future for analyzing crime scenes


This mini-laboratory, developed by the scientific police and French manufacturers, will allow precious samples to be taken in

This is one of the novelties visible at Milipol 2021. On the occasion of the 22nd edition of this exhibition, which will be held until Friday, October 22 at the Parc des Expositions de Villepinte, Paris-Nord, the national service from the forensic science department is presenting, for the first time, a tool that will make it possible to resolve more quickly investigations into events that have occurred in a contaminated area, such as a gas attack, for example.

“The intervention glove box” is an airtight box, approximately 1 m3, with transparent walls, fitted with gloves to analyze signs in a contaminated environment.

"It is a tool that allows us to work in a protected manner, without risk for our agents and without having to report samples, thus avoiding contaminating our laboratories", explains Pierre Pascaud, Chief of Staff of the forensic science .

This miniature laboratory, transportable and reusable, can analyze fingerprints, DNA or any traces left by criminals. This tool saves space and considerable time for scientific police. The box is equipped with digital connectors to quickly read encrypted data from a phone or computer at a crime scene. Agents called upon to intervene in contaminated areas undergo very technical training. They train about ten times a year, with simulation exercises to acquire meticulous body language and handle the polluted seals without danger.

"The glove box is still in the validation phase, although the results are convincing, it requires accreditation to be used in a real situation", specifies Pierre Pascaud.

This innovation exists, for the moment, in only one copy and it will be deployed in the future for “exceptional interventions”, adds the chief of staff of the forensic science.
