Nucleix Researchers Discover DNA Evidence May Easily be Falsified: Company Develops New Detection Technology for Preventing Biological Identity Theft
Date:8/17/2009

findings, we are working to make our proprietary assay available as soon as possible to the forensic science community."

"We believe that DNA authentication should become an integral part of the standard forensic procedure in order to assure genuine biological material has been evaluated," said Elon Ganor, MD, Nucleix Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder. "The state-of-the-art DNA authentication technology that we developed can easily be integrated into the standard protocols currently performed in forensic laboratories to assure the authenticity of the DNA sample being genuine and not fabricated. From our research in the forensic sciences community, we believe that this application of our technology to prevent 'biological identity theft' may be just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the potential for falsification of individual DNA."

About Nucleix
Nucleix, an emerging life science company specializing in forensic DNA analysis, has developed a "DNA authentication" assay for forensic casework samples with potential applications across multiple DNA analysis and validation fields. DNA fingerprinting has been established as one of the most important forensic tools in criminal investigations. Nucleix scientists have demonstrated the viability of creating artificial DNA and "biological identify theft." Using basic equipment and know-how, DNA with any desired profile can be fabricated in the lab, and this artificial DNA can then be planted in crime scenes as fake evidence. Until recently, there has been no way to distinguish between genetic profiles obtained from falsified DNA samples, which can appear identical to real biological profiles based on current analytical protocols and technologies. Nucleix's proprietary assays can distinguish between "fake" (in-vitro synthesized) DNA, and "real" (in-vivo generated) DNA. The company is committed to developing stat
