If you want a DNA expert to simply review a case
without re-testing exhibits, Genetic Technologies can
review the qualifications, statements, reports and
laboratory notes of another forensic laboratory and evaluate their procedures and testing methods.
By engaging our expert service to conduct a review of the DNA evidence,
you will be able to better understand the quality of the evidence,
underlying assumptions and possible limitations of the results before your case
goes to trial.
A written report of our review is produced that can be used in court.
When a case involves DNA evidence, our experts can help to examine the case file details from sample collection and testing methodology through to reporting of results. The right interpretation of these details is crucial in establishing admissibility, credibility and reliability of the DNA evidence in a court of law. Our DNA experts are unbiased and independent with a sole interest in discovering the truth, using DNA technology.
We review the case file including the laboratory notes, raw data, biological testing results (identification of blood, semen or saliva), exhibit continuity, DNA profile interpretation, statistical analysis and conclusions. We explain to our clients, in simple terms what the report, terminology and findings mean. Typically, evaluation verifies if there were any non-standard procedures used in generating the results or if the scientific data fails to support the conclusions.
