Softgenetics' Genemarker HID forensics software has been chosen to power the data-analysis feature of Integenx's Apollo 200 RapidHIT DNA Profiling system for human identification from tissue samples.
The incorporated software will enable the integrated system to produce unique human DNA profiles in standardised formats compatible with human identification database search systems.
Integenx is developing the Apollo 200 RapidHIT DNA Profiling system for deployment with law enforcement agencies and the US departments of Defence and Homeland Security.
The system automatically prepares, processes and sequences DNA from cheek swabs and other suitable human tissue samples.
With the incorporation of Genemarker HID software, the integrated system will automate and speed up the production of critical information for border security operations, crime scene analysis, paternity and other kinship determinations and other human identification needs.
