Who’s Been Eating Your Porridge?
How Forensic DNA Matching Works
“Who’s been eating my porridge?” cried Baby Bear. “And who’s been sitting in my chair?” Goldilocks was caught in the act, sleeping in the little bear’s bed, but most mysteries aren’t solved so easily. DNA Matching helps identify people who have been physically present in an area being investigated. Forensic lab technicians analyze traces of cells and other biological material left behind. and figure out who it belongs to.. In criminal investigations, DNA Matching is used to identify victims and suspects. It is also a powerful tool to clear people from suspicion based on their dna “fingerprint.”
DNA Matching can be used in other types of investigations as well, including private investigators, investigative journalists, writers and other people doing research for personal projects or purposes.
ARCpoint Labs of Herndon Can Collect Samples for DNA Matching From Many Objects
The technology of DNA analysis is continuously improving so that more and more information can be collected and analyzed from more diverse locations and objects and from smaller samples of biological material and residue. ARCpoint Labs of Herndon personnel are continuously trained to carefully collect DNA samples from objects and individuals. We can collect samples from:
- Cigarette butts
- Drinking cups
- Bedding and more
Forensic scientists are using what is known as “touch DNA,” to get usable information from very small samples and off a greater variety of objects and surfaces, invisible to the naked eye. Touch DNA is what excluded the parents of Jon Benet Ramsey as suspects in the decades old Boulder, Colorado murder investigation.
