HemoSpat Demo IconA demo version of HemoSpat is now available for both Mac OS X 10.4.x and Windows 2000/XP. It contains a sample project with ten bloodstain images and documentation to walk you through an analysis designed to highlight the features of HemoSpat.

You may download it here.

We hope you’ll give it a try and that you like what you see!

The first IABPA conference held in Europe was quite a success with about 140 attendees from over 20 countries. The organisers, André Hendrix [Politie Zeeland, The Netherlands] and Peter Lamb [Forensic Science Service, UK] did a great job. As with the Santa Barbara conference, the attendees were from quite diverse backgrounds and levels of experience which made discussions quite interesting.

I had a chance to demonstrate the HemoSpat Beta to a number of the attendees and the response was overwhelmingly positive. [To all those I was able to talk with – thank you for your interest in our project and I look forward to working with you in the future.]

See you in Corning NY!

I attended the IABPA training conference in Santa Barbara, California. It was a great learning experience!

I’d like to thank the organisers [especially Char] and the other attendees for making me feel welcome even though I don’t work in law enforcement or a crime laboratory. I look forward to working with you to provide the best tools I can for bloodstain pattern analysis.

See you in The Netherlands!
