Laboratory for Forensic Technology Development & Integration
The forensic laboratory is a complex system where each step influences outcomes of subsequent steps.
We will provide,
training and workshops that describe the theories, models, methods and tools used to validate the entire system in a cost- and time-efficient manner
support to optimize the laboratory conditions such as the PCR cycle parameters, PCR reaction volume, injection conditions for capillary electrophoresis and analytical thresholds
reports that demonstrate the laboratory conditions are fit-for-purpose and provide the highest allele information content for the technology employed. Reports include demonstrations of maximal signal:noise resolution, minimal false noise detections, minimal allele drop-out rates, minimal Pr(LR>1) for millions or billions of non-contributors and the most informative LR for true contributors
