Forensic Report

  1. Are your results compatible with CODIS?
    Yes. We use the 13-core CODIS loci for DNA testing.

  2. Are the results confidential?
    Our dedicated staff maintains the strictest confidentiality when dealing with all aspects of casework.

  3. How do I interpret a forensic DNA report?
    The forensics DNA report lists the samples tested and a short description of the procedures performed on the samples. It also lists the laboratory’s findings on whether matches were found among the tested samples.

    The three possible interpretations for the results of a forensic DNA test are as follows: match, non-match, or inconclusive. A match means that the DNA profile obtained from the evidence sample is consistent with the DNA profile obtained from the known reference sample (ie. suspect). A non-match means that an individual’s DNA profile is not consistent with the DNA profile obtained from the evidence sample. An inconclusive result is arrived at when no data could be obtained from the samples submitted, most likely because there was not enough DNA or the DNA was of poor quality.
