Human identification and forensics
Redefine human identification and forensics
Verogen – now a QIAGEN company
Verogen is now part of our QIAGEN family. Together we will offer NGS tools that go beyond traditional DNA profiling to deliver an identification in criminal or missing person casework.
Why NGS in forensics?
Tailored NGS workflows for every HID case
Add NGS to your forensic STR analysis
A small change in workflow. A big change in capability.
There is a complementary workflow for every application and every step in the process from sample collection at the crime scene to complete operational sequencing.
We are here to support you, whatever HID application you need – routine or complex analyses, kinship and missing persons, casework, research, or databases.
Traditional approaches versus what is possible to improve unidentified and missing persons investigations and forensic genetic genealogy.
“ForenSeq DNA Signature Prep Kit has the obvious advantage on low copy number and degraded samples compared with other CE-STR kits.”

Solving abandoned cold cases with molecular testing
“We're able to provide not only the ancestry, but also determined that these individuals existed and to provide a bit of history for their families about them”
At Towson University Human Remains Identification Laboratory (THRIL), forensic scientist Kelly Elkins trains students to apply next-generation sequencing (NGS) to historical forensic samples.
