IFS was the first independent private company in the Netherlands that performed biological forensic investigations. Founded in 2003, we have expertise in the fields of trace recovery; blood stain pattern analysis; DNA extraction, sequencing, and profiling; forensic medicine; injury interpretation; time of death determination; and crime scene reconstruction. Our state of the art laboratory uses the latest techniques in DNA investigation.
In addition to the Netherlands, we investigate cases from all over the world (e.g. the United Kingdom, Bangladesh, South America, Australia and the United States). In 2011, we started building a second laboratory in the United States.
Our activities span from case review, either closed or ongoing, to performing complete investigations. All personnel have extensive experience in crime scene investigation and data collection/interpretation. Our work experience includes more than two decades as forensic scientists.
Well-known cases in which IFS personnel performed investigations and appeared as expert witnesses in court include the cases involving Tim Masters, the Walsham Three, Casey Anthony and David Camm.
