Forensic DNA Unit Efficiency Improvement

Enhanced DNA laboratory capacity is critical to the ability of crime laboratories to meet the increased demand for DNA testing. Under the Forensic DNA Unit Efficiency Improvement Program, NIJ funded novel and innovative ways to improve the efficiency and capacity of public forensic DNA laboratories by developing and adopting an improved laboratory process. Some DNA Unit Efficiency projects produced gains in efficiency, capacity and overall process that could be useful to other laboratories experiencing similar problems. Visit the updated DNA Efficiency Improvement link to explore some projects from this program that yielded noteworthy results.
