The Case For Rapid DNA Technology: DNAscan
DNAscan Rapid DNA Analysis System, from GE Healthcare Life Sciences and NetBio® Inc., is a fully automated, tabletop DNA profiling system that enables processing of buccal and blood swabs for DNA database searching in the police booking station. DNAscan Rapid DNA Analysis System dramatically reduces the time from DNA collection to database search, in comparison to current lab processes. The system processes and analyzes DNA samples in less than 85 min to create CODIS-compatible files, which can be used to search against a local database. This speed, coupled with the ability to search a local DNA database, will help police address recidivism in their jurisdictions.
