A Mitotyping case, U.S. v. Beverly, was recently reviewed by the Sixth Circuit, and the science of mitochondrial DNA testing was upheld. This is one of the first federal appellate decisions concerning mitochondrial DNA.
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.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions about how we could provide forensic mtDNA analyses to you or your agency. We also can provide professional services such as case reviews, expert testimony, and educational seminars.
