The M-Vac sucks up DNA evidence for crime investigations

The wet vacuum made by Jared Bradley’s company was designed to suck bacteria off food — until he described it to his FBI friend, who coveted such a tool for crime scene investigation.
Now Sorenson Forensics, a private DNA-testing lab that aids Utah law enforcement, is using the M-Vac to suck up DNA from crime scene evidence to help close cases. They have already used Microbial-Vac Systems’ vacuum — a little blue and white nozzle hooked to a larger machine on wheels that filters and stores the collected evidence — on at least three cases in the state, said Cami Green, sales manager for the lab.
