Reference Collections

In an era when most companies and laboratories have abandoned their libraries and physical reference collections, Microtrace has made a firm commitment to maintain and curate such resources at the highest possible levels.  These collections are organized by unique ascension numbers in multi-relational databases, containing metadata as well as information about the source and provenance whenever possible.  Maintaining and organizing these collections provides direct and indirect benefits to our clients, in that many of these materials are used directly in casework to verify material identifications, while other samples are used in the context of research, which broadens our general understanding of materials and the microanalytical methods we use to characterize them.  We invite you to click on the links below to browse through a selection of the reference materials that we maintain at Microtrace.
