Fire Debris Analysis
Our Fire Debris analysis procedure follows ASTM Standards E-1618. This is the industry standard for identifying all components of ignitable liquids including alcohol in a fire debris sample.

Electrical Failure Analysis and Engineering
Electrical Failure Analysis and engineering can include most any residential or commercial installed wiring, devices, appliances, or machinery. Investigations can include incident site work, laboratory work, or both.

Vehicular Fluid Analysis
Our laboratory also provides vehicular fluid analysis, including oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and gasoline engineering.
