The term trace evidence comprises all the small material pieces which are collected carefully from the accidents and crime scenes for assisting in the investigation which follows these incidents. Conventionally the samples of trace evidence comprise of hair of humans and animals, fabrics, manmade and natural fibers, soil, rope, building materials, and glass. Adding to these common sample types, also a wide range of other materials can be included in trace evidence that can be cosmetics, fire debris, pollens, plastics, gunshot residue, soils, and filaments of the lamp. Being microscopic, these traces are often left behind unknowingly at the crime scenes by the perpetrators as an aftermath of the interaction between individuals and objects.
