Procedure Kit/Trays, Forensic Evidence
Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (i.e., either custom or standard kits) needed for collecting items and/or gathering information related to a crime scene. Items in these kits usually include an appropriate black light lantern, a duster brush, crime-scene tape, a magnifier, gloves, a pipette, peel/stick print folders, cello tape, dusting powder, testing products (e.g., magnesium sulfate, calcium carbonate), and a graphite block. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Forensic evidence procedure kits and trays are used during the investigation of crimes to gather scientific evidence which may be used in legal proceedings. These trays are mainly used in the field and in forensic laboratories.
