Ensure data integrity and chain of custody in forensic testing

 

For forensic testing laboratories, managing your test and sample data can present a significant challenge. Forensic facilities employ stringent sample collection and storage protocols to ensure chain of custody and minimize the potential for degradation. While flexibility is critical, so is the ability to comply with stringent regulations, including the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board (ASCLD/LAB) and ISO 17025. How can your lab ensure secure, traceable, defensible data that complies with quality and regulatory controls across a variety of materials and test protocols?

Thermo Scientific SampleManager LIMS software manages the complete forensic testing process including case management to help ensure traceability and certainty of results.

  • Helps ensure quality results and repeatability through controlled process execution
  • Demonstrate fully compliant data integrity lifecycles
  • Confirm resource suitability through in-process checks to ensure compliance to ISO 17025
  • Tracks chain of custody from receipt through archival
  • Connect directly to instruments and equipment to eliminate transcription errors
  • Manage a variety of complicated data types for DNA, ballistics, chemical testing and more
