Crime Scene Solution

As a crime scene investigator it is up to you to accurately capture every tiny detail of the scene. Who was on scene? What did they do? Who collected what evidence?

The Starlims web-based Crime Scene Solution is a comprehensive application specifically designed to streamline the documentation process by offering the following:
