FBI Approves ANDE Rapid DNA ID System

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – ANDE announced today that it is the first firm to receive approval from the Federal Bureau of Investigation for a rapid DNA identification platform that complies with new standards under the Rapid DNA Act of 2017.
The new FBI approval is for the ANDE 6C system — a two-hour test that uses a cheek swab sample and the firm’s FlexPlex chemistry, a consumable chip, and a ruggedized instrument. The approval allows accredited laboratories to process DNA samples using the ANDE system and search the results against the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System program, without manual interpretation or technical review.
