What is iLab?
iLAB is a web based system located securely on the SLED web site. It enables authorized users the ability
to pre-log cases for submission to the SLED Forensics Lab, download completed reports and view current information
on cases already submitted to the lab.
For more detailed information you may view the tutorials below. Email all requests for new
iLAB accounts and/or password changes to iLabRequests@sled.sc.gov.
If you are not sure of your access to the iLAB system, please contact your evidence department.
If you are experiencing any problem adding or retrieving information in iLAB, or have
questions about iLAB, Please contact one of the SLED iLAB administrators Lt. Joe Leatherman –
or Laura Corley –
Eligibility to Obtain a User Name and Password
Only customers who submit evidence to the Laboratory
for the purpose of obtaining results that will be used in a court of law, prosecutors
obtaining results that will be used in court of law, or correctional facilities
verifying CODIS submission samples are eligible to obtain a user name and password
to access iLAB. No user name or password will be issued to any individual
or agency who does not meet these criteria.
SLED policy requires that passwords must change every 90 days.
This includes the passwords for the iLAB system. The system will alert
users upon log in 15 days prior to password expiration. If the user's email address is in the system, an email
alert will also be sent as a reminder. If the
expiration date is reached and the password has not been changed, the
system will lock the user account. To unlock
the account, you must email a member of the SLED Forensic IT staff with your agency
name and user id.
Separating From an Agency
When an iLAB user
separates from an agency, it is the responsibility of the agency to notify a member
of the SLED Forensic IT staff of the separation. That user’s account must be locked
to prevent further access by the individual. If that account is to be transferred
to another user, the password must be changed immediately upon the vacating individual’s
separation from the agency.
The following tutorials have been created to help familiarize you with the SLED Forensics Lab iLab system.
Check this page often. New demonstrations will be added as features become available on iLab.
Forensic Analysis Requests
Analysis requests and corresponding explanations listed by department that are available in the SLED Forensics Lab.
If you still have questions about your evidence submissions please contact the lab at 803-896-7300.

iLAB Information Group
joined the iLAB yahoo information group yet?
please send a request to
with your name, agency and iLAB user id (for confirmation) and I will send you an
invitation. All you need is a yahoo account and an email address to receive
iLAB group messages.
The iLAB Group is a private group and a great source of information. It was
created in order to share information with as many iLAB users as possible.
Joe and I use it to post information about changes to the system, server maintenance
and other important iLAB related issues. SLED lab department members use it
to put out department specific information. And iLAB users can present general
evidence submission or packaging questions or concerns. Case specific information
(details about a specific case) is not recommended. There is even an archive
so you can catch up on any information already posted.
