Mock Forensic Samples
Mock Forensic Samples - Realistic mock samples simulating forensic scenarios

  • Varying DNA sources such as semen, blood, and saliva
  • Includes challenging 2 and 3-person donor mixtures
  • Ideal for training, competency testing, validation and R&D studies
  • Customizable options to suit your laboratory’s needs

The latest training guidelines approved by SWGDAM (Scientific Working Group on DNA Analysis Methods) specifically state in section 5.2.1.4: “The type of samples included in practical exercises should be representative of the range, type, and complexity of casework or database technologies, methodologies and platforms in accordance with the trainee’s job responsibilities and the extent to which the trainee will participate in DNA analysis.”

Mock forensic samples available from InnoGenomics are designed to help forensic laboratories more easily meet these training guidelines. We offer multiple mock case scenario options, ranging from single source samples to sexual assault and homicides with complex mixtures. Each mock case includes a sealed answer key (for use by the training supervisor or technical leader), along with a case scenario description and instructions for the trainee.

In addition to training, these samples are ideal for competency testing, validation projects and R&D studies. And we offer customizable training sample options to suit your laboratory’s specific needs.
