Case study

KBI’s innovative facility required functionality and flexibility for a wide variety of forensic applications in both their lab and instructional spaces. To optimize evidence and personnel protection throughout the building, Labconco consulted on the project with equipment recommendations that maximized safety and efficiency in the new building.

The problem with fentanyl: Handling toxic drugs

Tune into the nightly news and you may not be surprised to hear a story about the growing opioid epidemic in the United States. Opioids, which are analgesic drugs with a high liability for abuse, are typically prescribed to treat severe pain.

The CApture BT Fuming Chamber: Designed with you in mind

Regardless of industry, there are lots of factors that go into releasing a new product—cost-effectiveness, quality material sourcing and reliable manufacturing capabilities, but at the heart of delivering quality equipment, though, is considering the needs of the forensic professional.

4 Reasons you shouldn't dry evidence in a fume hood

If you are currently drying evidence in a fume hood, it might be time to consider obtaining an Evidence Drying Cabinet instead. Evidence Drying Cabinets (EDCs) are designed specifically to dry evidence in a secure environment to not only protect the evidence from cross contamination, but to maintain proper chain of custody.

CA fuming & forensics

A fingerprint is an essential piece of information gathered at a crime scene. It can, in fact, be the differentiating factor an investigator will use to ultimately prove guilt or innocence in a case. How fingerprints are captured depends on the type of print: visible prints can be recorded with a photograph, and so can impression prints (if appropriate lighting is used).

How to handle and preserve wet DNA evidence

DNA forensic evidence may be the most powerful tool for convicting the guilty and exonerating the innocent, so handling DNA evidence properly is critical. The integrity of DNA evidence depends on properly processing biological material. There are three main concerns when processing biological evidence for DNA:

Planning a crime lab with multiple evidence drying cabinets

In recent years OSHA (Occupational, Safety and Health Administration) has investigated, reported and fined crime labs for workplace safety issues regarding drying closets and drying rooms. Using evidence drying cabinets to dry wet crime evidence offers many advantages and safety features over simply placing the evidence in drying rooms or closets.

Using genealogy and genetics to solve crime

Forensic science continues to make big strides in technology and methodology. One of the latest advancements is called genetic genealogy. Also known as GG, this process combines traditional historical genealogical research with genetic analysis to study family histories. In forensics, it serves multiple uses, including identifying a victim or a perpetrator.
