Laboratory Submission Guidelines

These submission guidelines are recommendations of what should be included in the initial evidence submission to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation Forensic Services (CBIFS), but do not reflect what should or should not be collected at the crime scene. These submission guidelines are separated by the common types of requested examinations. Please see our General Submission Guidelines for an overview of the submission process.

Please feel free to contact us at any time regarding your submission. It is our goal to ensure your understanding, educate you on situations that may be unfamiliar to your agency and to work collaboratively to ensure the citizens of Colorado are served at the highest possible level.
