Your forensics team answers a call to a gruesome incident: stuffing flung everywhere, a piece of yarn tail at the bottom of the stairs, and two lone button eyes that catch the glare of the flashlight. And are those bits of suspicious green plant material? Okay, you don’t respond to calls for disemboweled cat toys. (And it’s apparent Beaker perpetrated this “murder.”) But complicated cases requiring the input of multiple disciplines come into your lab every day. A dynamic LIMS is the key to handling everyone’s needs. [Read More]
Strategic use of your organization's data can provide insights you didn't know you needed. Though it's no small feat to integrate your lab data with that of the other systems in your organization. CSols can assess your current situation, make a plan to get you to that desired state, and then work with you to implement it. Chart your path to future data management with confidence. Let's Talk Data! [Read More]

With data being the most valuable output of a laboratory, scientific teams are now implementing effective practices to collect, store, and manage data using laboratory information management systems (LIMS). However, when scientists work in controlled environments, it can be challenging to use a tablet or a laptop to digitally record results or observations while striving to maintain standard operating procedures (SOPs).

In this 2021 article published in the journal Information, Alruwaili presents their framework "for better and more secure evidence preservation and handling" in digital forensics: CustodyBlock. Noting the importance of evidence management and the complexities that come with it, the author's framework turns to "private blockchain protocol and smart contracts to support the control, transfer, analysis, and preservation monitoring of forensic evidence." After discussing the related research and justification for such a framework, Alruwaili briefly covers research methodology, digital evidence custody, and the architecture and algorithm for their framework. After a brief discussion of the results, the author concludes that the framework demonstrates strong protection of the evidence chain and a more robust handling methodology, with the potential to handle information beyond that of digital forensics.
