How ParaDNA Works
Samples obtained at a crime scene are tested within a closed system to reduce cross contamination. Within 75 minutes, the ParaDNA system indicates whether samples contain a useable DNA profile.
"We know that DNA profiling can help establish whether or not there is a link between a suspect and a crime," said Mark Dearden , Business Unit Director of ParaDNA for LGC Forensics. "ParaDNA enables a quick and simple, on-the-spot, presumptive DNA screen to complement submissions policies – and could save significant time and cost in the investigative process. We are delighted that this partnership with Life Technologies will allow us to 'fast-forward' those samples most likely to be informative, by placing the technology straight in the hands of investigators."
