Mitotyping Technologies - The clear choice for forensic mitochondrial DNA and STR analysis.

Accredited for human identity testing by ASCLD/LAB since 2001 and permitted in forensic identity by New York State.

We are also permitted in the area of forensic identity by the New York State Department of Health.

We recover mtDNA from over 95.5% of hairs.

Please see our January 2005 publication in Journal of Forensic Sciences about our five years of casework experience with hair analysis. Our protocols for working with degraded DNA give us a superior recovery rate for mtDNA in challenged samples.

Mitotyping Technologies Species Identification Test 

 
The ability to identify the species of origin is useful in poaching cases, product contamination cases, animal abuse cases, and CITES investigations. 
 
Mitotyping Technologies is able to determine the species of origin from virtually any tissue, bone, hair, or secretion.  Our method, DNA sequencing of the short fragment of a 12S ribosomal mitochondrial DNA gene, is described in the article published in Forensic Magazine.  To view the article, click here.

The method has also been published in Journal of Forensic Sciences.  To see the PDF of that manuscript, click here
