Requirements for storage, monitoring, and data collection of DNA evidence has increased in the last decade. The media attention and public awareness of the role of crime labs has increased dramatically. Though ASCLD/LAB accreditation is voluntary, many defense attorneys will challenge evidence if a lab is not accredited. ASCLD/LAB accreditation demonstrates that a crime laboratory’s procedures meet established standards. A quality assurance program is a vital part of achieving and maintaining accreditation. Installation of the Rees Centron monitoring system ensures that no evidence has been lost or degraded and is a valuable tool to achieve quality assurance and operations in evidence processing and storage.
