Forensic Testing

MS Instruments equipment can be used for forensic investigations to identify weapon or ammunition performance in a forensic case and to train officers in recognising shot patterns.

We provide equipment for ballistic gel analysis for looking at the effect of a projectile on the body and provide software to deliver accurate analytical results.

Our velocity equipment and strawboard imager can assist in weapon and ammunition identification and for understanding the characterisation of fragment size, energy and distribution. All these factors can help determine the lethality of a projectile and provide crucial evidence in a case.

Our forensic equipment is used by police forces throughout the UK.
