Enabling efficient, quality assured workflows that reduce leakage
points in the 'end-to-end' forensic process and provide timely
forensic intelligence to solve, disrupt and prevent crime.
The forensic-register is a forensic case management application with an
integrated laboratory information management system (LIMS) which satisfies
all accreditation requirements of ISO/IEC 17025 and AS 5388. The forensic-register is
the dominant forensic case file management application across policing
jurisdictions in Australia and has been in active use and development
for over 17 years. It allows for storage of all forensic case
information including evidence recording and collection, forensic
examinations and reviews, digital image capture and retention, storage
of digital files, diagrams, examination and analysis results into a
single case file record. Integration with instrumentation, analytical
and interpretative software allows for efficient and accurate
reporting of results for clients. It includes performance monitoring
and management of workflows through a range of highly effective
reporting, performance and quality assurance aids.
Forensic Informatics is essential to modern policing and
investigation generally. BdnaTec's team of business analysts,
engineers and forensic subject matter experts work closely with law
enforcement and forensic laboratories to improve forensic service
delivery through accurate, timely analysis and the rapid
dissemination of forensic results and intelligence.
The forensic-register is a single, flexible, forensic platform
that supports highly efficient field and laboratory based
Crime Scene Workflows
The forensic-register provides mobile capture and transfer of
forensic evidence to expert support services, enabling the
production of rapid intelligence that often results in suspect
nominations and identifications whilst at the crime scene to
accurately direct investigations.
The forensic-register provides digital, paperless DNA workflows
within a single application from crime scene collection to
laboratory DNA analysis, resulting in efficient identification
of offenders and forensic intelligence linkages.
The forensic-register utilises completely digital fingerprint
workflows from crime scene capture to expert comparison
resulting in efficient identification of offenders and
forensic intelligence linkages.
The forensic-register provides digital, paperless chemistry
workflows within a single application from crime scene
collection to laboratory chemical analysis, resulting in
efficient reporting of results and forensic intelligence
The forensic-register includes ‘end to end’ exhibit management
ensuring continuity of evidence and integrity of results
through the entire examination workflow.
Performance Management and Statistics
The forensic-register manages and reports the performance of
individuals, facilities and organisations using real time data,
tracking common operational activities and organisational
reporting elements across all forensic capabilities.
The forensic-register mines digitally captured data, aiding in
the proactive identification of trends, links and networks
from which operational intelligence can be derived.
The forensic-register maintains a searchable database to easily
identify suitably authorised and available personnel for
operational taskings and professional development opportunities.
Equipment and Supplies
The forensic-register tracks suppliers and service providers
and integrates traceability of forensic supplies and equipment
used within forensic casework, to ensure the quality and
integrity of results.
Quality and Compliance
The forensic-register’s integrated quality management system
incorporates auditing compliance and monitoring tools to
identify and manage non-conformance issues at the earliest
opportunity, ensuring continued accreditation against national
and international standards.
The forensic-register can be deployed on any device supporting
efficient field and laboratory based activities. Acquisition of
field data using mobile connected devices, including images and
notes, further increases the efficiencies of the inbuilt digital
workflows and reduces risks by minimising equipment required in
