The missing
link to missing

Othram technology enables the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) and the Australian Federal Police’s (AFP) National DNA Program to identify human remains and resolve missing persons cases. Local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies across the United States and internationally have partnered with Othram to break through previously impenetrable forensic DNA barriers and close previously unsolvable cases.

Purpose-Built for Forensics

Othram features essential infrastructure and process for testing forensic DNA evidence, including automatic human enrichment, separate unidirectional workflows, and upfront DNA profile feasibility assessment to avoid unnecessary evidence consumption.

Optimized for Identification

Othram digitizes many types of genetic variation, powering proprietary KinSNP® analysis, mixture deconvolution, and genealogy. These methods, in combination with the DNASolves® database and other resources, enable human ID from forensic evidence.

Secure and Accountable

Othram uniquely offers in-house processing of evidence, from DNA extraction, enrichment, and repair, to sequencing and genealogy. Our lab supports chain of custody and is staffed by seasoned forensic DNA analysts with experience testifying in court.
