This technique has the potential to dramatically increase the success rate of obtaining a CODIS quality DNA-STR profile from sexual assault evidence. In conjunction with P.A.L.M./Zeiss, Independent Forensics is developing the procedures, protocols, methods, and kits that will be required to make this research quality instrument into a robust, reproducible work-horse for the forensic laboratory. Laser capture microdissection kits will, of course, make use of SPERM HY-LITER™ technology for the identification of sperm.
