    Serology/DNA

                                                                         

    The serology and DNA section examines evidentiary items for body fluids and evidence that may not be readily visible to the naked eye. When analyzing items for body fluids, such as blood, semen and saliva, the scientist must locate the sample, then identify its origin. The scientist can offer an opinion regarding the association between the sample and the person.

     

    The Serology and DNA Laboratory processes approximately 1300 cases per year, examining about 4500 different samples, including blood, semen, saliva, hairs and fibers and other substances.
