Nia,

To answer your question, collecting the evidence is cruical to down stream analysis and can impact the reliability and validity of any data obtained. If a sample is collected wrong, labeled wrong or the proper substrate controls are not collected it can be wasted or not of much value as it could have been. All future hope of obtaining information from the crime scene is related to how it is collected, labeled and the chain of custody that follows it.
