    Abstract

    The design of a simple vacuum sweepings trap for use in a portable Dustbuster® vacuum is presented. The device allows for the preliminary sorting of the various types of particulate matter at the time of their collection. This trap has proven to be of value in forensic science cases that involve trace evidence.
