We have a great deal of exciting news that we intend to announce very soon. But, to borrow a practice from my favorite campy, demon - hunting TV shows, Supernatural, let's take a moment to reminisce on the crazy road we've travelled thus far to get to this place as a laboratory and community!
I cannot tell you the emotions that come when this video plays. From the inception of the company in early 2019, all of the planning and hard work to prepare. Then came construction which felt surreal as I became "employee #1" in October 2019.
We brought on an amazing team that has become a family driven to change the world and provide justice and peace to families who so desperately need it!
Then came the long days and hard work of developing and implementing the laboratory's processes, procedures and adhering it to 732 accreditation requirements for our forensics accreditations (Federal Bureau of Investigation Quality Assurance Standards, ISO 17025).
Just when we thought we had reached the end of the tunnel, COVID-19 made things just that much more difficult.
The IMF family is so proud of all we've accomplished thus far. We're now just starting to see the results from all of our hard work (keep watching this space for some exciting solve announcements coming soon)!
We're doing whatever we can to help and we've found some amazing friends, partners and supporters to get there. The next few weeks are going to be VERY exciting! Keep an eye out, we've got some really fun things to tell you about.
Let's change the world,
Danny Hellwig, Laboratory Director
