• Command Line Interface—the ability to access GeneMapper ID-X Software automatically (without human intervention) streamlines its integration with LIMS installations and other applications in an existing laboratory infrastructure

Automated Data Assessment
GeneMapper ID-X Software was designed specifically to fulfill the requirements of both Expert System and Expert Assistant software. A combination of sophisticated automated data assessment processes and efficient manual review tools deliver comprehensive expert system capability. This provides optimal interaction between the analyst and the data, significantly reducing the amount of analysis time required for single source samples. New features such as the Analysis Requirements check, Allelic Ladder Quality Assessment, Improved Quality Value System, and the Analysis Summary analyze samples and segregate them into pass or review categories based on your thresholds. Once segregated, you can easily conduct any necessary manual review of samples.

Despite its capabilities to automate and streamline the analysis of single source samples, an Expert System is as yet unable to make the final analysis decision for most forensic casework samples and in particular for those containing mixtures. GeneMapper ID-X Software harnesses the automated, rule-based, subject-specific knowledge to act as an Expert Assistant to the forensic analyst, simplifying much of the analysis process and empowering the analyst to make key interpretation decisions. A mixture analysis tool determines the number of contributors to a mixture and efficiently manages the resulting possible genotypes. This enables the forensic analyst to interpret mixtures and generate accurate statistical calculations.

Manual Tools Improve Data Review
Data analysis efficiencies offered by the automated data review processes have been further enhanced through the introduction of a new suite of manual review tools. These developments focus around the plot window providing quick and easy access to all aspects of the data, thus simplifying the data review process. Colored marker header bars indicate which markers within a sample have failed to meet the user defined thresholds and the new Process Quality Value (PQV) Details window details which flags have been fired and how much the observed value differs from the threshold. In addition, expanded labeling options are available to distinguish alleles from artifacts and reviewers can directly access raw data for further troubleshooting. Electronic/peer review of the data is enhanced with the review and manual acceptance of marker and sample level PQVs along with a detailed label edit table display.

For further troubleshooting, reviewers can also directly access raw data. The ability to review and manually accept markers and sample-level PQVs in a detailed label edit table display enhances electronic/peer data review.
