ISO 18385:2016 external certification achieved!

As innovation and technology development in DNA profiling permit increased sensitivity during short tandem repeat (STR) analysis, minute levels of exogenous DNA that were previously undetected may now generate partial profiles. Such contamination can prevent successful analysis and jeopardize the integrity of irreplaceable casework samples. Therefore, ISO 18385:2016 was developed to assure and, where necessary,… Read article →
