Careful sample collection and handling of evidence play a crucial role in human identification and forensic investigations. It is extremely important that the samples are collected using proper tools that provide superior DNA release, especially when the sample is scarce, and guarantee the preservation of the DNA. In addition, with the increasing sensitivity of STR chemistries and amplification systems, even a small amount of DNA may now generate a partial profile. It is important that Forensic DNA Laboratories and Police use consumables which are manufactured with minimal risk of interference from contaminating human DNA. To meet those important needs, COPAN offers 4N6FLOQSwabs® Crime Scene, 4N6FLOQSwabs® Genetics, NUCLEIC-CARD™ and NAO®Basket products that are certified free of human amplifiable DNA, free of detectable DNase and RNase and EtO treated.
