Maintaining Chain-of-Custody in Forensic Labs
Defend your data with better traceability
The ability to successfully defend a laboratory’s data is paramount to the overall mission of any forensics lab. Central to that is maintaining chain-of-custody throughout the analytical workflow, not just during sample collection, transport, and storage. One of the last frontiers to maintaining sample custody exists within the analytical workflow, specifically, the labeling of analytical samples. For a large percentage of analyses, the samples are extracted for use in chromatographic instruments, and the samples are stored in 2 mL glass vials. Eliminate the manual nature of vial labeling using the Thermo Scientific™ Virtuoso™ Vial Identification System that allows printing directly onto a vial with information taken out of a LIMS.
