Forensic DNA
Forensic DNA

Forensic DNA has been an emerging field that which technology is constantly advancing.  DNA forensic can be used to not only identify people, but to also solve crimes.

Our staff works hard to make the DNA Identity Testing Center your choice of provider for all DNA testing services. We ensure superior quality, service and convenience to our clients. In our commitment to providing convenience, please know that we provide a free DNASwabTM Home DNA Collection Kit for use in all types of private DNA tests.

DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid)
DNA is found in the nucleus of all cells and is the blueprint for an organism.  No blueprint is the same, and it cannot be altered either.  This steadfast consistency has been essential in the field of DNA Forensics to help with solving crime.  DNA can be extraction from number types of samples, such as hair roots, saliva, clothing, semen, blood teeth, fingernails and much more.
Mitochondrial DNA
Mitochondrial DNA
Mitochondrial are structures inside the cell and their essential function is to convert food into energy.  These mitochondria have their own DNA molecules (mtDNA) which can create a DNA profile.  This DNA, which is only inherited through the mother, can often be easier to locate and extract than nuclear DNA.  It is useful for DNA Forensics when identifying victims of mass disasters, in the cases that nuclear DNA could be damaged.
Advances in DNA Technology
Advances in DNA Technology
Not only can DNA link a person to a crime, it can also link a person to several crimes in different locations.  Once the DNA is entered in CODIS (Combined DNA Index System), the software can identify matching markers from the DNA found from various crime scenes in the system to the suspects DNA.
PCR Analysis
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is used to make millions of exact copies of DNA from a biological sample. DNA amplification with PCR allows DNA analysis on biological samples as small as a few skin cells. With RFLP, DNA samples would have to be about the size of a quarter. The ability of PCR to amplify such tiny quantities of DNA enables even highly degraded samples to be analyzed. Great care, however, must be taken to prevent contamination with other biological materials during the identifying, collecting, and preserving of a sample.
