    DNA Test Witnessing

    In some cases, the amount of DNA on an item of evidence is so limited that only one test can be performed and no evidence  remains for retesting.  

    If such destructive testing is a possibility in your case and testing has yet to be performed, we believe that an experienced individual should be present to witness the processing of the samples in your case.

    To retest a sample of evidence in your case or not? A variety of factors can affect this decision, factor which we can help you sort through. While Applied DNA Resources does not perform testing in house, we can assist you in identifying a laboratory that performs testing using the highest standard.
