Support Our Work

In order to provide Lab Retriever free of charge, we are pursuing a non-commercial model to support its development and dissemination. McLaughlin Grant funds, generously allocated by the California Association of Criminalists, have supported the initial development of Lab Retriever. Funding from an NIJ grant supported further development of Lab Retriever, and production of ground truth data set to be use for research and validation.  The data set will be made publicly available in the near future.

Continued public funding will be necessary to support the scope of development, research, validation, education, and dissemination that is required to make Lab Retriever a stable long-term solution. Therefore we will continue seeking  grant funding as well as donations from the general public.
