Forensic analysts use scientific techniques to solve criminal cases. They may use traditional methods such as fingerprinting, assisted by computers. In addition, they use blood analysis, forensic dentristy, voice and speech spectrograms, and genetic fingerprinting. Forensic analysts use chromatography and ESDA (electrostatic document analysis), a technique used for revealing indentations on paper, which helps determine whether documents have been tampered with.
