Rapid DNA results uploaded for the first time to UK’s DNA database

Categories Biometrics News  |  Law Enforcement

Rapid human DNA identification technology firm IntegenX announced that The National DNA Database (NDNAD) had forensic DNA profiles uploaded from the RapidHIT System, making it the second major national database to complete such a task.

Established in the United Kingdom in 1995, the NDNAD database currently contains more than five million forensic DNA profiles.

The samples that were uploaded using the RapidHIT System were taken from individuals suspected of a crime or in custody.

Key Forensic Services processed the samples as part of a program to run all samples from arrested suspects as part of their routine service offering.

“We’re thrilled to be the first Rapid DNA platform to have our technology provide rapid results to such a prestigious DNA database,” said Robert Schueren, president and CEO of IntegenX Inc. “Such uploads, in addition to the numerous samples from the RapidHIT that have gone into the U.S. Combined DNA Index System (CODIS), demonstrate the importance rapid results may have in helping to solve crime.”

The IntegenX RapidHIT System fully automates and integrates all necessary steps to generate a DNA profile in under two hours.

Additionally, an operator is able to generate up to seven complete DNA profiles in less than five minutes of hands-on time.

RapidHIT System DNA profiles are fully compatible with standard databases that contain previously generated profiles from reference and crime scene sources.

Combining ease of use and rapid turnaround time for DNA human identification will significantly influence in ensuring community safety, according to IntegenX.
