Forensic DNA Data Interpretation
Integrated forensic DNA software solutions
The forensic DNA workflow requires numerous intricate steps, including complex analysis, procedures, and decisions. As a result, many laboratories heavily rely on their information technology and software systems to help guide them, and effectively manage their day-to-day laboratory operations.
Thermo Fisher Scientific's integrated software solutions for the forensic DNA laboratory can help streamline and simplify your lab operations, and provide you confidence in the accuracy and validity of the raw data and final analyzed results that your lab generates.
We provide optimized solutions for the DNA laboratory, including integrated tools for:
- Case, subject and profile management
- Quantification analysis
- Fragment analysis
- Expert system genotyping
- Kinship and Paternity Analysis
- Next-generation sequencing analysis
Tighter integration between your instrumentation, software, and laboratory workflows can help significantly increase your lab’s effectiveness, and simplify your daily operations. This leaves more time and resources for analyzing more cases, and increasing overall laboratory efficiency
