Access genetic information from forensic evidence that has failed or is unsuitable for testing with other labs and lab methods. This includes highly degraded, contaminated, chemically-damaged, and mixed-source DNA.
Evidence processing, from DNA extraction and enrichment & repair, to DNA testing and analysis is performed in-house, with full chain-of-custody, by experienced forensic DNA analysts that have testified in court.
Obtain SNP profiles with 100s of thousands of DNA markers, compatible with any genealogy database, with minimum consumption of evidence. Additional tools like KinSNP® & mixture deconvolution help accelerate solves.
