ParaDNA® indicates, right from the start of your investigation, whether or not samples collected at a crime scene contain human DNA and which of these are most likely to deliver investigative leads. It only takes 75 minutes to screen samples to acquire this vital advance knowledge. Quickly identifying and targeting the right samples allows DNA screening result to complement submissions policies and could save significant time and cost in the investigative process.
This short video shows just how quick and simple it can be to screen samples for DNA.
After a brief training session, your examiners will have no trouble at all determining which of your samples contain human DNA and are suitable for further lab analysis.
Covers the spectrum of initial DNA sampling.
You can triage a large amount of evidence from one scene or select appropriate samples from numerous stains found on a single item.
Independently screen up to four samples at a time.
In just over an hour, you’ll know which samples contain DNA and should be sent away to the lab for profiling.
Gives an accurate presumptive test for DNA to help make informed decisions on submission policies.
A ParaDNA test is a fraction of the time and cost of conventional DNA analysis in the lab.
ParaDNA ensures that those samples containing Human DNA, which are likely to deliver a result in follow up lab analysis are prioritised.
Prioritising samples with the highest chance of delivering a result will improve the effectiveness and make best use of budgets for DNA analysis.
Results are reliable, reproducible and repeatable.
A closed system minimises the risk of contamination and screening sensitivity is comparable with standard DNA tests.
Your examiners control the whole screening process.
Training is straightforward and no previous DNA experience is needed to reliably carry out the collection of samples suitable both for triage and further laboratory analysis.
Makes the costs of DNA sampling and analysis more predictable.
A one-off capital investment, including training and customer support buys the equipment. A calculator will be available to enable customers to determine how success rates and costs can be optimised.
