DNA methylation – the future of forensic casework analysis
Analyzing methylation patterns in biological samples collected at crime scenes can be used to determine the age or tissue origin of the sample. In cases with no DNA profile match against a database, such information could be critical for providing additional intelligence for criminal investigations and sexual assault cases.
Confident tissue source identification in forensic casework
Attribution of a DNA profile to a specific cell or tissue type can enable forensic investigators to address source-level questions often posed by the judiciary. Learn how analysis of DNA methylation by Pyrosequencing on the PyroMark Q48 Autoprep enables accurate and reliable sperm identification in sexual assault samples.
Rapid, reliable quantification of total human and male DNA
Determining the degradation status of both male and total human DNA prior to STR analysis is important when analyzing sexual assault samples where low levels of the male perpetrator’s DNA could be degraded in a high background of a female victim's DNA. Discover how the Investigator Quantiplex Pro RGQ Kit provides reliable information on DNA degradation status using quantitative real-time PCR.
