    Abstract

    Casework experience in the detection of GSR particles on samples from hands, hair and clothing is reported for the period of 6 years (1989–1994). The overall “success” rate on the examined samples is about 10%. Aspects of the sampling procedures, the number of particles detected per sample and problems of possible contamination are discussed.
