Major Player

We have played a major role in some of the most serious and complex criminal investigations in this country, and our experts are well-versed in finding, recovering, analysing and interpreting forensic evidence many years after a crime occurred, and after items have been examined by other forensic science providers.

The Latest Forensic Techniques

We have access to the very latest forensic techniques – such as obtaining DNA profiles where it has previously not been possible, giving a significant increase in the likelihood of obtaining a useful profile from extremely small amounts of cellular material.

Our Experts

Our experts, who are accustomed to giving evidence in court and undergoing rigorous cross-examination, can offer advice on the likelihood of obtaining meaningful results from old or challenging material.

In some circumstances, it may be possible for them to re-examine and re-sample exhibits from historic crime scenes, sometimes years after the crime.

We provide valuable input into forensic strategy and support the investigation through all stages with advice, consultation and updates.

We provide the investigative team with a single point of contact –a senior KFS scientist with wide experience of all types of serious crime, who, as well as being hands-on, is the liaison point for all other KFS scientists and manages the progress of the case at all stages.
