All our laboratory operatives are Science graduates who have been trained specifically in fire debris analysis and in forensic processes. This allows our clients to have complete confidence in our analytical results. All of our analysts are also trained to professionally present their results in court.
Our standard service allows for samples submitted to be tested and results delivered within 5 working days. A simple, easy to understand test report is provided by email. In exceptional circumstances, the laboratory can offer a premium express service.
Chain of Custody
We recognise that samples submitted may constitute evidence so a strict process of handling is stringently followed. Our sample integrity standards, our chain of custody procedures, and our capability to present court testimony have been independently vetted and approved by experts in the field of forensic science. Samples are retained according to judicial standards in a secure, controlled environment.SUBMIT A SAMPLE >
