DNA provides biological truth
DNA evidence has both acquitted and convicted many defendants; and advancing techniques have made it highly advisable to obtain a critical third-party view, especially when a case hinges on mixed DNA or very small amounts of DNA.
Here at Evidential, our in-house specialist has over a decade of experience and provides a robust expert witness service, which has been called upon in numerous high-profile cases.
Extensive range of DNA techniques
Our expertise includes the full range of human body fluids and tissues which can be transferred between people or objects, such as clothing or weapons. We commonly evaluate evidence for cases relating to burglary, sexual offences and murder, among many other matters.
As well as routine tests, our scientists can apply specialist forensic DNA techniques such as low template, Y-STR, mitochondrial and animal – even if resultant profiles are small, mixed or degraded.
Our other services include paternity testing and supplementary DNA testing, carried out to ISO 17025 quality standards.
