DNA forensics labs have long struggled to analyze highly compromised evidence using short tandem repeat (STR) loci. Retrotransposable element insertion polymorphisms, or INNULs, have shown promise as an alternative for these specific sample types. But INNULs analysis raised its own challenges that, until now, prevented its application as a multiplexed marker system. A new study…Read more
Validation papers for the InnoTyper 21 and InnoQuant Kits are now published! Plus third party studies demonstrating utility for forensic DNA casework. Links to all the publications can be found here...
In studies conducted by the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Applied Genetics Group, the InnoTyper 21 kit proved to be more discriminating than traditional STR and mini-STR multiplexes for degraded DNA fragments less than 150 base pairs in size. The studies, which were presented in a recent AAFS poster (click here to view),…Read more
2016 was a big year for InnoGenomics, with the commercial release of our DNA testing kits, InnoTyper 21 and InnoQuant HY, that enable forensic DNA laboratories to successfully analyze challenging biological samples. The announcement garnered exposure in GenomeWeb and other media outlets, while fruitful collaborations with prominent members of the forensic science community such as…Read more
