Key LIMS Features that Increase the Return on Your Investment Webinar - April 26th - 12pm ET.

Forensic science marries a number of diverse disciplines including biological and DNA analysis, trace and chemical analysis of non-organics, pathology, and toxicology. As such, forensic science utilizes a myriad of techniques and equipment in an attempt to collect, preserve, and identify crime-scene evidence. Recently, advances in biotechnology and instrumentation have revolutionized the modern forensics lab, presenting a host of new challenges and opportunities for the forensic scientist. Join Lab Manager’s free educational webinar where our panel of experts will discuss the latest trends and tools in forensic science today.

Sample Receipt Checklist

When logging in samples, laboratories must verify the conditions under which the samples were received. The most efficient way to do this is a checklist within the LIMS. This not only helps automate the process, it also records the checklist automatically, adding to the necessary paper trail for audits.
