The company maintains high levels of security
at all times while carrying out its mission
of providing impartial forensic testing to law
enforcement, the legal profession and its clients,
and private individuals. Mitotyping provides
a secure office suite for the analysis of forensic
casework samples that includes 24 hour limited
access and outside security monitoring.
Chain of Custody
All evidence samples and current casework laboratory
documentation are locked in the evidence room.
Evidence samples are stored in locked refrigerators
and freezers in the evidence room. All samples
remaining from completed case work, including
remaining evidentiary material and DNA extraction
products, will be returned to the requesting
agency or individual at the conclusion of a
case unless the client gives instructions to
destroy any remaining samples. Dormant case
files are locked in fire-resistant cabinets.
