Forensic Science

Forensic Anthropology is the practice of physical anthropology, which deals with the identification and recovery of skeletonized human remains (bones) to answer legal questions. Forensic Biology involves DNA test and serological analysis of bodily (physiological) fluids for the purpose of identification. Forensic Psychology and Psychiatry – This involves learning, assessing and identifying mentally-related illnesses and human behavior to obtain legal evidence. Forensic Origin and Cause- This is the study, explanation and identification of a fire to determine the cause of ignition and origin [more...]

AcroMetrix Announces the Launch of Calibration Panel for CMV DNA ...

The panel was designed to provide traceable results and possess commutable properties across assay systems. A material is considered "commutable" if it behaves like a patient sample on different diagnostic platforms. The OptiQuant CMVtc Calibration Panel is intended for use as a standard to assess the performance of molecular diagnostic test procedures for the determination of human cytomegalovirus (CMV) DNA. Accurate diagnosis of patient disease states requires reference materials that are not only traceable to a higher-order standard, but also closely mimic true patient samples, a property [more...]

DNA Solutions Inc. has received a $700,000 Phase II SBIR grant from the Defense Department in collaboration with Oklahoma State University to develop a live test for chronic wasting disease, officials said. Chronic wasting disease is an infectious disease that affects mule deer, white-tailed deer, Rocky Mountain elk and moose, said Dr. Brandt Cassidy, director of laboratory operations for the Oklahoma City-based company. The research will help develop a sensitive detection system that will be able to detect chronic wasting disease before death. Currently, the disease is only detected after [more...]

SBI Policy Favoring Prosecution Was in Writing | Raleigh Criminal ...

When a Raleigh newspaper reported this past summer that analysts in the crime lab of the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation routinely withheld test results favorable to the defendant, the scientific community and defense attorneys urged the state to make the crime lab independent of the state's law enforcement agency. Those efforts may be redoubled in light of recent revelations. This week, the newspaper reported that it was not only the practice for analysts to withhold possibly exculpatory evidence, it was also the policy. According to the audit conducted in August, the SBI had [more...]

What is Forensic Serology?According to forensic serologist Marcella Jones of www.ForensicMentor.com, forensic serology is the analysis of body fluids as they relate to forensic cases, including DNA analysis. Accordingly, the role of the forensic serologist involves:Examining evidence for the presence of body fluids e.g. blood, semen, hair, tissue, saliva, feces, and urineEvaluating evidence for potential DNA analysisEvaluating species of body fluidsPerform PCR (polymerase chain reaction) based typing of STR (short tandem repeat sequences) of genomic DNA, or mitochondrial sequence analysis of [more...]
