As next-generation genomic tools are increasingly being considered for use in forensics, one Korean company is looking to carve out a niche for itself.
Seoul-based DNA Link recently introduced AccuID, an Affymetrix-manufactured resequencing array for genotyping that is available as a service and a kit. DNA Link claims it has generated unpublished data demonstrating that the current version of AccuID can determine the identities of missing persons and human remains better than commercial microsatellite genotyping products.
