Testimonials:

“We have seen the power of both the InnoQuant and InnoTyper systems to get nuclear DNA results from very compromised samples, even those that are over 150 years old. These new technologies will help us get answers in some of our most difficult cases.”
                - Dr. Jose Lorente, Director, University of Granada Genetic Identification Laboratory in Spain

“Our studies have shown that the InnoTyper 21 kit can recover informative profiles from extremely challenging skeletal remains that have failed to yield results using other methods. We are planning to implement the system and expect it to become an important tool for us.”
                - Dr. Bruce Budowle, Director of the University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTHSC) Center for Human Identification
