Forensic Investigation in the CBRN
Contaminated Environment

The CBRN related crime scene is complex and is often compounded by many factors posing numerous challenges to the forensic teams during the post-event forensic examination of a CBRN incident. Scene safety, CBRN risk assessment, collection of samples in a contaminated environment, packing, transporting samples with contaminated material off-site safely, as well as analysis and unambiguous identification of CBRN material are some of the challenges we address. Whatever the risk associated with the use of CBRN material, our training specifies robust safety procedures to ensure quick access to the crime scene for first responders and forensic investigators.


Our capacity building services cover a wide spectrum of topics relevant to CBRN scene forensics to enable government agencies to strengthen their CBRN forensics response capabilities. Our mission summarizes decades of experience in dealing with CBRN hazards and the most effective countermeasures to mitigate them. Having conducted investigations into the use of chemical weapons we can share our own experiences and lessons learnt to help you bridge the gap.
