Forensic Laboratory EquipmentForensics Science: Crime Lab Revelations

Forensic lab equipment is used to detect, collect, and process samples and evidence for further evaluation and determination. Some of the key measurements that forensic labs perform are:
  • Trace evidence analysis
  • Fingerprinting and DNA identification
  • Evaluation of body fluids
  • Compound determination, such as drugs or other hazardous chemicals
  • and more

Forensic studies

There are several key forensics science segments that study in and outside of the laboratory, which include:
  • DNA Forensics
  • Forensic chemistry
  • Forensic geology
  • Forensic serology
  • Forensic toxicology
  • and more

A Range of Instrumentation :

Depending on your type of forensic analysis there are several forensic instruments and equipment options to choose from. Central to most forensic labs are microscopes, fume hoods, chromatographs, and spectrometers.

Upright Microscope System from Leica Microsystems OpenGene DNA Sequencing System from Siemens Ninhydrin Fingerprinting Humidified Incubators from Mystaire Misonix Evidence Drying Cabinet from Mystaire Misonix, Inc. Niton XL3p XRF Analyzer from Thermo Scientific Eppendorf Centrifuge Model 5804 / Refrigerated Model 5804 R Fixed PIPETMAN Single Channel Pipette from Gilson Inc Ductless Fume Extractor (Single Capture Arm) from Mystaire Misonix, Inc. Techne 3 PRIME G Thermal Cycler from Bibby Scientific Ltd.

Key considerations for purchasing forensic laboratory equipment :

Price point is a consideration, however while there are other low-cost alternative products for forensic lab testing it is important to rely on dependable and regulatory compliant, accredited systems. Another consideration is analysis time for your particular forensic lab instrument. Evaluation and determination is readily needed for further processing in the forensic industry and having a system that can provide accurate, reproducible data in a timely fashion is critical.
