Manage Your Investigations with ELab LIMS for Entomology

Forensic entomology laboratories turn observations of insects and arthropods into evidence for death scene and infestation investigations. Besides the visual evaluation of larval and adult insects, these investigations can include analysis of photographic evidence, insect DNA and toxicological spectrographic analysis. Bringing this together to support law enforcement agencies, medical examiners and expert witness testimony requires an information management system with strict chain-of-custody controls.

Whether you attend death scenes or receive specimens from crime scene investigators, ELab LIMS associates every specimen with proper case numbers, death scene maps and body maps. From the registration of a specimen through analysis and storage, ELab LIMS for Entomology keeps an unalterable chain-of-custody record to preserve the integrity of your investigations.
