Forensic DNA LIMS with Unique Testing Workflows and Chain of Custody

In the last several decades, forensic DNA laboratories have become vital to the investigation and resolution of crimes. The legal aspect of forensic DNA lab testing separates it from the DNA testing conducted at clinical laboratories, focusing not on predicting health status, but on comparing blood, hair, and tissue samples found at a crime scene with that of a suspected individual. LabLynx has experience in the complicated plate mapping, testing, and essential chain of custody and audit tracking that is critical to your forensic DNA laboratory. Our ELab forensic DNA LIMS is designed to work with your lab and your workflows, not force you to change and conform to the LIMS itself, as other solutions require. Our system tracks samples, plate movement, and label verifications at every step. File imports and exports are included at any process step, allowing you to seamlessly connect to instruments as available. LabLynx also offers its electronic laboratory notebook, ELabNotes, putting the efficient recording of observations and report generation directly into your hands.
