More conclusive results in forensic testing are now a practical reality thanks to advances in genomics. Illumina next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology and informatics deliver far more insight from forensic DNA than traditional PCR and capillary electrophoresis (CE) methods, with a much higher resolution than ever before possible. You’ll find the answers you need efficiently with a greater degree of certainty, with the focused power of NGS-based forensic genomics approaches.
NGS allows examiners to generate data that span the human genome and address a wider range of questions in a single, targeted assay. Moreover, NGS-generated STR allele calls are fully compatible with current database formats. Early studies provide a promising view of the advantages NGS brings to analysis of even the smallest, most compromised, and highly mixed evidentiary samples.
