Help When and Where You Need It With Forensic DNA Consulting
DNA analysis and forensic biology testing are scientific and therefore unbiased procedures which provide useful evidence for the prosecution and/or defense in criminal investigations. At Sorenson Forensics, we offer forensic DNA consulting via on-site processing and Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) using the latest tools and procedures then subjected to comprehensive testing and analysis performed in our multi-accredited laboratory.
DNA Lab India is well known for Forensic DNA consulting by assisting state attorneys, public defenders and private investigators from across the country in a variety of felony casework. We assist attorneys in case scenarios ranging in severity from high profile serial murders and sexual assaults, to those involving sexual harassment, damage to property, accident reconstruction, and home invasion. One-third of the initial suspects are cleared before going to trial as a result of DNA analysis, thereby saving the taxpayers’ money, the court’s time, and most significantly — the innocent’s freedom.
Do you need help processing a crime scene for a case that needs the proper chain of custody to be upheld? Need a second opinion on DNA evidence collected, or do you desire to perform your own initial investigation? Contact Us Today.
DNA Lab India offers on-site processing and Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) using the latest tools and procedures, and are then subjected to comprehensive testing and analysis performed in our multi-accredited laboratory. Our forensic DNA services have been used to exonerate individuals previously convicted of heinous crimes such as murder and rape at a time before advanced DNA testing was available. Many of these crimes then went on to be resolved with the true perpetrator being ultimately convicted. This service is well known for assisting state attorneys, public defenders, and private investigators from across the country in a variety of felony casework.

Certified accident reconstruction experts may add one more tool to their array of investigative techniques through the use of DNA. Sorenson Forensics uses DNA analysis to determine the occupants’ positions within a vehicle (driver or passenger status) at the time of impact. By analyzing a deployed driver’s airbag, we can often make such a determination. The force behind a deploying airbag delivers the “punch” necessary to generate and deposit DNA samples on the airbag in the form of nasal mucus, saliva, and/or blood.
The accident investigator merely needs to cut the stained section from the deployed airbag or seize the entire airbag and retain it as evidence until DNA analysis may be performed. Defense strategy in automobile accidents often revolves around the issue of who was operating the vehicle when the accident occurred. With DNA results to confirm the identity of the driver, the issue is no longer a point of contention.
As part of our consulting services, we painstakingly review the entire case file to include all items stemming from the original agency’s findings. A short list of items typically encompassed in the comprehensive review include:
DNA was not used as a forensic tool in the United States prior to 1986. For this reason, the courts are allowing cases to be reopened if evidence or technology unavailable at the time of the original trial (such as DNA) provides information that will exonerate a wrongly convicted individual.
Breathe new life into old cases that became cold due to a lack of physical evidence. Using new DNA technology and many advanced techniques, we can now pull DNA from samples that were too difficult or too small previously.
Until DNA, fingerprints were considered a reliable form of establishing identity. However, fingerprints have been seen to change as a child grows or can be altered by a person’s occupation, scars, or burns. DNA has proved to be the most reliable form of human identification to date.
Having a DNA sample tucked away securely provides peace-of-mind and crucial evidence for whenever you might need to know for sure. We offer a special DNA identification, collection, and storage kit which enables the user to easily provide a sample specimen and then mail it to our laboratory for storage. This offers a foolproof identification that is better than fingerprinting.
