INVESTIGATION OF CRIMES AND DISASTERS: CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS
GENOMICA provides this service for you for the study of biological criminal expert opinions, including the analysis of biological traces of interest, such as blood stains, sperm, hair, cigarette butts, etc.
By means of comparing the DNA footprints it is possible to reliably determine whether two biological samples are genetically related. The biostatistical study makes it possible to unmistakably identify an individual from among more than 100,000 individuals.
This method may potentially be used for the following purposes:
- Identification of biological traces (hair, blood, buccal epithelial cells on cigarette butts, etc.) found on the crime scene and their comparison to those under suspicion.
- Identification of traces of sperm on garments in cases of sexual assault and their comparison to those under suspicion.
- Identification of human remains found on the scene of an accident or disaster, as well as human corpses or remains in advanced stages of decomposition.
Strict compliance with the chain of custody of the samples and the reliability of the reports issued by GENOMICA make them valid as expert proof before the Courts. It is for this reason that GENOMICA is called upon and possesses wide-ranging experiences as experts in courts of law.
GENOMICA also possesses a great deal of experience in conducting counter-expertise studies requested by the parties involved: This counter-expertise may be from the report proper already issued or by conducting of a completely new analysis. Our team will be able to provide you with advice.
