Forensic Chemistry of Hair Analysis - Classroom Kit
by Innovating Science

When we think of a crime scene, some of the first things that come to mind are blood, fingerprints, DNA, footprints, and clothing. All of these things can assist forensic investigators in not only re-creating what may have happened, but also in determining who the perpetrator of the crime was.

What about hair, though? It is so common that it gets taken for granted, a lot of the time. However, it possesses characteristics that can help narrow down a possible suspect when no other evidence is available, or what is available has been somehow contaminated. We can determine a number of things from a single strand of hair, like whether or not the sample is human or animal, if it is human whether it is Asian, Caucasian, or of African descent, amongst other things.

This kit includes 6 different hair samples: 4 human, and 2 animal. It also comes with a set of 72 glass microscope slides and glass coverslips, as well as 15 pairs of tweezers. There is a teachers manual and a student guide included with the kit.

There are some items that are needed to complete the experiments, but are not included: wax pencils for marking the slides, distilled water, light microscopes, and lab safety equipment.
