In collaboration with internationally renowned forensic entomologist Dr. Jason Byrd, Ph.D., TRITECHFORENSICS has designed this innovative kit for the collection of insects and related arthropods that are associated with death investigations. Our joint efforts have created the critical instruction manual, customized forms, and unique components that are necessary to assist an investigator in today’s world.
Our partnership with Dr. Byrd produced the manual included with this Forensic Entomology Kit, providing specific instructions on the procedures to collect specimens for evaluation. Based on many years of crime scene investigation experience, the customized forms were written clearly and concisely in order to provide step-by-step directions that investigators will find easy to use. Even investigators with limited experience utilizing forensic entomology kits will find the kit to be straight-forward and designed to walk them through the process with confidence.
