Chemometric Study on the Forensic Discrimination of Soil Types Using Their Infrared Spectral Characteristics (2011)
Journal Article
Baron, M., Gonzalez-Rodriguez, J., Croxton, R., Gonzalez, R., & Jimenez-Perez, R. (2011). Chemometric Study on the Forensic Discrimination of Soil Types Using Their Infrared Spectral Characteristics. Applied Spectroscopy, 65(10), 1151-1161. https://doi.org/10.1366/10-06197

Soil has been utilized in criminal investigations for some time because of its prevalence and transferability. It is usually the physical characteristics that are studied; however, the research carried out here aims to make use of the chemical profil...

Reversing microcrystalline tests—An analytical approach to recycling of microcrystals from drugs of abuse (2011)
Journal Article
Elie, L. E., Baron, M. G., Croxton, R. S., & Elie, M. P. (2011). Reversing microcrystalline tests—An analytical approach to recycling of microcrystals from drugs of abuse. Forensic Science International, 207(1-3), e55-e58. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.forsciint.2011.01.008

A combined analysis of microcrystalline tests followed by LC–MS or GC–MS analysis is described. Microcrystalline tests are shown to be non-destructive as addition products formed were easily dissociated after the application of an appropriate solvent...

Variation in amino acid and lipid composition of latent fingerprints (2010)
Journal Article
Croxton, R. S., Baron, M. G., Butler, D., Kent, T., & Sears, V. G. (2010). Variation in amino acid and lipid composition of latent fingerprints. Forensic Science International, 199(1-3), 93-102. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.forsciint.2010.03.019

The enhancement of latent fingerprints, both at the crime scene and in the laboratory using an array of chemical, physical and optical techniques, permits their use for identification. Despite the plethora of techniques available, there are occasions... Read More about Variation in amino acid and lipid composition of latent fingerprints.

Evaluation of the dimethylaminocinnemaldehyde contact transfer process and its application to fingerprint development on thermal papers (2009)
Journal Article
Croxton, R., Lee, J., Bleay, S., Sears, V., & Mehmet, S. (2009). Evaluation of the dimethylaminocinnemaldehyde contact transfer process and its application to fingerprint development on thermal papers. Journal of Forensic Identification, 59(5), 545-568

The use of dimethylaminocinnemaldehyde (DMAC) as a fingerprint development reagent was first proposed in the 1970s as a solution-dipping technique to target the urea constituent of fingerprints. However, in operational trials, the quality of develope...

Development of a GC-MS Method for the Simultaneous Analysis of Latent Fingerprint Components (2006)
Journal Article
Croxton, R. S., Baron, M. G., Butler, D., Kent, T., & Sears, V. G. (2006). Development of a GC-MS Method for the Simultaneous Analysis of Latent Fingerprint Components. Journal of Forensic Sciences, 51(6), 1329-1333. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1556-4029.2006.00203.x

Latent fingerprint residue is a complex mixture of organic and inorganic compounds. A full understanding of the composition of this mixture and how it changes after deposition is lacking. Three solvent systems were compared for the simultaneous extrac... Read More about Development of a GC-MS Method for the Simultaneous Analysis of Latent Fingerprint Components.

Journal Article
Nolan, K. F., Croxton, R., Strong, V., Soler, D., Fairchild, P. J., Cobbold, S. P., …Waldmann, H. (2004). IL-10-Conditioned Dendritic Cells, Decommissioned for Recruitment of Adaptive Immunity, Elicit Innate Inflammatory Gene Products in Response to Danger Signals. Journal of Immunology, 172(4), 2201-2209. https://doi.org/10.4049/jimmunol.172.4.2201

Dendritic cells (DCs) are the professional APCs of the immune system, enabling T cells to perceive and respond appropriately to potentially dangerous microbes, while also being able to maintain T cell tolerance toward self. In part, such tolerance ca...
