Updates from the Lab
Next Generation Sequencing:
At Intermountain Forensics, we employ the most advanced technology tools to aid investigations. Next Generation Sequencing provides a variety of forensically relevant information in one single test. From hair and eye color to ancestry information and even genetic genealogy.
We will help you unleash the full power of Forensic DNA!
Sexual Assault Backlog Reduction
End the backlog:
We are committed to providing a resource to the countless victims of sexual violence that are awaiting their justice. We are committed to employing process efficiency and exploring new technologies to maximize the capacity to analyze this crucial evidence.
We will do everything in our power to reduce the sexual assault kit backlog to zero!
Traditional Forensic DNA Testing:
We intend to be a supplement to Forensic DNA crime laboratories around the world. There are times when "cutting edge" is not needed yet there just aren't enough resources to get cases processed with traditional DNA testing methods. We will assist those organizations such as Law Enforcement, Victim Advocacy Groups and the Innocence Project to get evidence worked. Whenever possible we will offer this service FREE or at reduced cost.
We are your partner to get these cases tested in the most efficient and affordable way possible!
Forensic Genetic Genealogy
We believe that forensic genetic genealogy is the future of cold case investigation. We intend to help progress the population of this database in every way possible. We will assist you in generating a Genetic Genealogy profile to upload to the database or help you to upload your 23andme and/or Ancestry.com results.
We will also generate forensic genealogy data from evidence and assist the search with our genetic genealogist partners.
