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.
