Forensic science is the application of science to the legal process. DNA analysis can play a pivotal role in comparative evidence in both Criminal and Civil Court cases.
DNA Consulta works on a personal basis with the Law Courts and Law Enforcement Agencies, most notably the Police, Embassies and Consulates, Fireworks and Pyrotechnics Companies, Notaries, Banks and Insurance Companies, The Military and Corporate Industry, in collecting, labelling, preserving and profiling DNA specimens.
In criminal cases DNA evidence can be used to link various crime scenes, a perpetrator to a victim or indeed to a crime.
The nature of the sample can be very diverse, and one must try to preserve the sample to extract as much DNA as possible, even from heavily degraded or buried samples. Sources of DNA include body fluids and human tissue and these can be found in objects where contact is made.
Evidence from the crime scene must be carefully labelled and preserved and DNA profiles obtained can then be compared.
Personal DNA profiles are essential for persons who work in a high risk environment (as military personnel, fireworks’ factories, with oil drilling companies), abroad as missionaries or as part of a military mission.
In civil cases DNA evidence can be used in paternity cases, or cases to establish familial relationships, and also cases of inheritence and estate management as the Court so orders.
