Law Enforcement

Address recidivism rates faster

DNAscan Rapid DNA Analysis System is the result of the requirements specified by a US government multi-agency consortium to make the technology of rapid DNA analysis available to law enforcement, crime labs and the biometrics community.
The ability to perform DNA analysis in a rapid, easy, and accurate manner in the field has the potential to speed up the investigative process, reduce recidivism, and identify or exonerate suspects.


Built for ease of use and ruggedized for the booking station

DNAscan Rapid DNA Analysis System has been ruggedized to meet US Military 810F standards to protect it from shock and vibration during transport and operation. This allows for the transportation and relocation of the instrument without need for realignment or recalibration. Additional fortification of the internal systems provides shielding from environmental dust and debris.

From instrument to database search—bringing it all together

DNAscan Rapid DNA Analysis System is simple to install, without the need for a service visit, thus eliminating any disruption to the daily activities of your booking station. Police officers can use the complete system competently and effectively with minimal training2. Once the system has processed the DNA samples, the instrument’s automated Expert System software analyzes the data and provides realtime feedback on the usability of their results. Data output can be securely transferred to local databases3 for searching. Ultimately, Federal policies under active consideration may allow searching of the data from the DNAscan Rapid DNA Analysis System against CODIS databases (LDIS, SDIS, NDIS).


2 Comprehensive training programs can vary from 1 to 4 hours depending on the needs of the booking station.
