The future is bright for forensic science!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area: Genotyping and forensic analysis

"STRMix™ has been a game changer, not only for DNA Labs International, but for the forensic science community as a whole. The probabilistic genotyping software has seamlessly become part of everyday processing at our laboratory and has been ushered into the courtrooms with open arms throughout the United States and Caribbean nations that we work with. The ability for our laboratory to return to cold cases that had previously yielded inconclusive mixtures, process the sexual assault kit backlog without the laborious hand calculations and having a new tool in fighting gun crime are among the many benefits that STRmix™ is providing our team of forensic analysts. The developers of STRmix™ have listened to and worked with us and the scientific community to add new features to the software and increase processing speeds, enabling even more time and cost-effective analysis with high quality. I have seen the profound impact of STRmix™ firsthand in the laboratory, for law enforcement and on the faces of jurors in the courtroom. The future is bright for forensic science!"

STRmix™ is a breakthrough for forensic analysts as it can assist investigations using DNA evidence that was previously considered too complex to interpret. The software has been developed by New Zealand Crown research institute ESR, with Forensic Science South Australia (FSSA).

STRmix™ includes a function that allows the software to match mixed DNA profiles directly against a database. This is a major advance for cases where there are no suspects and there is DNA from multiple contributors in one sample.

With STRmix™ you will be able to:

  • interpret DNA results faster
  • combine DNA profiles from different kits in the same interpretation
  • compare profiles against a person of interest and calculate a likelihood ratio
  • resolve previously unresolvable, complex DNA mixtures with no restriction on the number of contributors
  • use more of the information in a DNA profile, and model any type of stutter 
  • search complex, mixed DNA profiles against a database
