Celebrating life – it’s DNA Day on April 25!

National DNA Day commemorates the discovery of the DNA double helix in 1953, as well as the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003. Looking at the history of DNA timeline, the landmark discovery of James Watson, Francis Crick and colleagues was based on foundations previously laid down by several other scientists. Although Friedrich… Read article →

Back-to-basics – EZ1 extraction

With recent advances in technology and automation, forensic laboratories can now streamline the DNA analysis process to increase efficiency and throughput, while reducing manual manipulation. The level of automation, or throughput, is flexible, and can be structured to fit each laboratory’s needs – from platforms dedicated to a single purpose to instruments that are a… Read article →

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 →
