The possibility of confirming an individual's identity by DNA matching makes the collection of cellular material left at the crime scene mandatory. Each scene presents its own problems and unless the investigator is prepared to collect any and all potential sources of DNA, valuable evidence may be lost. The most frequent forms of forensic evidence available for testing DNA found at the crime scene are: fresh blood, semen, hair roots and clothing stained by physiological fluid.

Lightning Buccal Swab Collection Kit The Buccal Swab Collection Kit is in the form of a medium size envelope which can be mailed or hand delivered to the laboratory. This type of collection can be done by law enforcement personnel and does not require medical personnel to do the collection. Simply follow the simple directions in the kit as to the collection of the sample by rubbing the cotton swabs in the suspect's mouth or the inside of the cheek. Of course, gloves are provided in the kit, along with documentation forms and security labels. Once the collection is complete, place the swab in the smaller inner envelope, seal it with one of the enclosed evidence seals and ship the sample to your laboratory.

Lightning Whole Blood Collection Kit The Whole Blood Collection Kit will most likely require qualified medical personnel to perform the collection of the blood. The kit includes everything necessary for drawing a small blood sample from the individual. It includes a syringe to draw the blood, a glass vial to hold the sample, sterile gauze pad, security and biohazard labels and a padded envelope to protect the blood sample while it is in transit. The kit comes in a small box which can be used to mail or deliver the blood sample to a laboratory. It is important that the officer involved be present and witness the collection procedure. This should be noted on the documentation form.

Lightning Blood/Body Fluid Collection Kit For times at crime scenes when you need to collect biological stains for evidence, here is a kit to help you. The Blood/Body Fluid Stain Collection Kit has been developed for the collection of wet or dry stains on surfaces that are not easily transportable to the crime laboratory for analysis, i.e., walls, doors floors, window frames, etc. If the stain is on clothing, bed sheets, couch cushions or items which can be transported, check with your crime laboratory before you decide whether to do the stain collection yourself or to collect the whole object. More than likely, you will be required to submit the entire article for analysis.
This collection kit contains rubber gloves, a vial of distilled water, five envelopes containing two cotton swabs each, five swab envelopes and five swab boxes. It also contains complete instructions for collecting dried stains and wet stains. There is a seal for closing the box and the box meets the United States Postal Service standards for mailing biological samples.
