The conventional approach to human DNA identification requires days to weeks of work by highly skilled technicians using sophisticated equipment which is operated and maintained in a lab. NetBio is disrupting the market by enabling human DNA identification in a fraction of the current time required – while still executing rigorous and widely accepted analytical techniques. By transforming conventional lab manipulations into automated microfluidic workflows and using an intuitive interface that guides the operator through the process, NetBio solutions deliver up to five robust DNA profiles in less than 85 minutes.
NetBio technology is undergoing a comprehensive multi-laboratory validation study with leading international and US accredited NDIS forensic laboratories. Their evaluation covers the entire system from “swab-in to profile-out” and is based on an extensive set of FBI Quality Assurance Standards. Results of this study will be used to seek NDIS approval to enable forensic laboratories to submit STR profiles to CODIS. Note that to date, no Rapid DNA instruments have been approved by the FBI.
