Forensic LIMS

End-to-end informatics solution for complete forensic life cycle

Manage critical case data in one secure, seamless forensic informatics platform

To speed forensic investigations, you need a laboratory informatics platform that is highly reliable, flexible, and purpose-built for the specialized needs of managing forensic evidence and data. LabVantage Forensic Navigator™ is that solution, providing traditional LIMS capabilities and much more.

For each investigation, all relevant stakeholders – from law enforcement to prosecution – are connected by a comprehensive platform with a single source of data, eliminating discrepancies and redundancies. A secure online portal in Forensic Navigator provides stakeholders with real-time access to role-relevant data, including the ability to make requests for testing, check on status, and download copies of final reports.

Meeting the needs of all stakeholders across the forensic life cycle:

Crime scene investigators can document the scene from start to finish, uploading images and videos, capturing scene-processing activities, documenting law enforcement participants, and posting related reports

Medical examiners can document external and autopsy observations, track next-of-kin, capture interview notes and more

Forensic supervisors and examiners can manage all aspects of the analytical process from assignment through review of final report

Lab managers can be confident SOPs are followed and turnaround times are on track  

Lab operations and equipment managers can manage and calibrate instruments, including liquid-handling equipment, ending noncompliance, and ensuring proper maintenance of equipment 

Quality control managers can leverage SDMS functionality so files are securely stored with full traceability and search functions.
