Forensics and
justice for all.

Justice is not a luxury; it is a basic human right.

Safety is an expectation of modern society and can only be achieved when justice is universal.

Society requires infrastructure — roads, bridges, highways — and so does the criminal justice system.

At Othram, we are building the roads and underlying infrastructure that will deliver justice for all cases, everywhere.

Othram's mission in context.


Unsolved homicides
This number grows yearly, as more unsolved homicides are added, while only 50% are solved.


Unidentified human remains/victims
These cases are rarely identified using the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) alone.


Sexual assault kits do not identify the assailant
More than half of the tested sexual assault kits do not identify a suspect.

From crime scene to court room.

Othram combines laboratory science, software, and process, to build a better and more robust infrastructure for justice.

Othram's technology enables local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies across the United States and internationally, to break through previously impenetrable forensic DNA barriers and close previously unsolvable cases.

Othram uniquely performs all casework-related service in-house, with the essential infrastructure and process for testing forensic DNA evidence.

Othram’s forensic laboratory has been accredited by the ANSI National Accreditation Board to the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standards for Forensic Testing and Calibration Laboratories, for Single-Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) testing utilizing Massively Parallel Sequencing (MPS).

Othram is committed to continuous iteration and improvement, learning from each case and refining our technology and our processes regularly.
