Definitions

PRELIMINARY REPORT: Preliminary report includes DNA Extraction and Quantification (Stop at Quant).  A laboratory report is issued to provide invaluable information about further testing, if any.  Decisions on whether and how to proceed are made in case consultation with IMF staff.

SEXUAL ASSAULT KITS: Pricing based on Intermountain Forensics Sexual Assault Kit processing policy. 

CASE CONSULTATION: Forensic DNA Casework is a collaborative process.  We want to assure you that any consultation before, during or after case processing will be free of charge (1hour).

NEXT GENERATION SEQUENCING: 

DNA Signature includes CODIS approved Short Tandem Repeats (STR), Y Chromosome STRs (YSTR), X Chromosome STRs (XSTR) and identity Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (iSNP).

 

DNA Signature + includes CODIS STR, YSTR, XSTR, iSNP as well as phenotypical SNPs (eye color, hair color etc) and ancestry informative SNPs.
