Mitochondrial DNA is present in rootless shed hairs, hair fragments, skeletal remains, and other samples too minimal and/or degraded for STR testing.
Mitotyping Technologies employs skilled scientists with previous experience in the handling of DNA, especially DNA extraction, PCR amplification, and DNA sequencing.
