Since its inception, Mass Spec has continued the innovative use of mass spectrometry in forensics, enabling a breakthrough in 1996 when the company launched the individual banknote analysis technique in the UK court system.

This novel approach enabled many thousands of individual banknotes to be analysed quickly and reliably, making other techniques used at the time, obsolete.

Police Investigations

Mass Spec has been employed by the majority of the UK Police Forces to perform forensic analyses and to provide expert witness evidence.

Mass Spec experts have also given expert evidence in courts in Gibraltar, Germany and Holland. Police Forces in the Caribbean use our forensic services for casework involving currency, bulk drugs, plastics, tapes and packaging. The company currently provides contracted forensic services to HMRC and the UK Border Agency, analysing currency for illicit drugs.
