Mitotyping Technologies - The clear choice for forensic mitochondrial DNA and STR analysis.

Mitotyping specializes in crime scene hairs, missing persons, genealogical investigation, adoption maternity, historical cases, cold cases, ancient DNA, and post-conviction evaluation. Each sample is individually analyzed.

Mitochondrial DNA is present in rootless shed hairs, hair fragments, skeletal remains, and other samples too minimal and/or degraded for STR testing.

Mitotyping Technologies Species Identification Test 

 
The ability to identify the species of origin is useful in poaching cases, product contamination cases, animal abuse cases, and CITES investigations. 
 
Mitotyping Technologies is able to determine the species of origin from virtually any tissue, bone, hair, or secretion.  Our method, DNA sequencing of the short fragment of a 12S ribosomal mitochondrial DNA gene, is described in the article published in Forensic Magazine.  To view the article, click here.

The method has also been published in Journal of Forensic Sciences.  To see the PDF of that manuscript, click here
