Caption: Paint analysis. Forensic scientists preparing to analyse a sample of unknown car paint (on glass slide) by comparing it to known paint samples (on desk). This comparison can help identify the exact colour of the vehicle the paint came from. If the suspect vehicle is recovered, then a match can be made. This paint evidence is not conclusive, since many cars will have the same coating of paint, but it can be used to justify further investigation.
