Microscopic examination of your physical evidence to confirm a NIBIN lead or a BIQ Potential Link

Time is of the essence when conducting firearms-related investigations and BALLISTICS IQ CONFIRMATORY SERVICES can dramatically increase your agencies efficiencies. Once you receive an unconfirmed NIBIN lead or BIQ Potential Link, the next step is to have the two actual pieces of ballistics evidence compared forensically. Our Senior Firearms Examiners will utilize a comparison microscope to review your actual evidence and provide a court-ready peer-reviewed report in about 7 days.
