AAFS 2024

Published on 14 February


In February, we attended one of our favorite conferences, the AAFS (American Academy of Forensic Sciences) – this year from February 19-24 in beautiful Denver, Colorado.

Besides our booth in the exhibition section of the conference where you could learn about the different products we develop in the area of forensic identification, our research team was also presenting eight topics in the sections Anthropology, Criminalistics, General, and Odontology.
