Isotopes

 Analyze / Isotopes

The stable isotope lab received the hair, bone collagen and teeth you sent them. 

Like DNA, if the samples are not degraded or contaminated, the forensic analyst will be able to construct an isotopic profile for the deceased individual. 

By analyzing the ratios of carbon, nitrogen and strontium in the samples, the lab may be able to provide you with important information about the victim's life history and geographic origin.
