The Tarrant County Medical Examiner Forensic Laboratory has two divisions:  Chemistry/Toxicology Laboratory, and Crime Laboratory (consisting of Evidence Department, DNA/Forensic Biology, Firearms/Toolmarks, and Latent Prints).  The laboratories analyze evidence submitted by law enforcement agencies for criminal cases, as well as by the TCME pathologists to assist in determining cause and manner of death.
