There is an element of subjectivity to virtually all types of examinations conducted in the forensic laboratory. The level of this subjectivity may range from relatively low, as in the interpretation of certain instrumental results, to relatively high, as in the comparison of handwriting or firearms evidence. It is generally held, however, that comparisons of physical evidence should be as objective as possible.
