Improve Chain of Command with Streamlined Lab Operations

From pre-logging evidence and documenting the crime scene, to laboratory analysis and property storage and disposition, the Starlims Forensics Informatics Platform streamlines the entire forensics process, helping your agency cut costs, save time, and simplify compliance. By making evidence collection and management easy and accessible from anywhere, Starlims helps you spend less time on paperwork and more time on important casework.

Our Solutions

Laboratory manager tracks testing samples using STARLIMS laboratory information management system (LIMS) for Clinical Labs.


With the forensic LIMS, streamline evidence at the scene by barcoding and entering evidence right from your patrol car. With standardized drop-down lists and the ability to interface directly with other instruments, you can save time, reduce transcription errors, and deliver more accurate results. Use vehicle and body processing templates to improve notetaking, store/annotate photos, record tests results, collect evidence, and start the chain of custody immediately. The LIMS in our forensics informatic platform also helps you know the location of items with alerts for misfiled or misplaced evidence, and reminders for when it’s overdue.

Forensic SDMS is designed to simplify documentation management with a collaborative, central repository. It also allows you to easily integrate with PDF-based testing equipment. With SDMS in our forensics informatic platform, you can manage the lifecycle of your critical laboratory and quality documentation, while also pulling in data from HPLCs, CGs, and other instruments. Capture, parse, store, and organize any scientific document, and automatically extract data to be recorded and traced with your LIMS. With all your documents and data stored in one place, you can avoid data silos, improve document management, and easily collaborate with teams around the world.
