Rapid DNA data utilized in court to obtain a conviction for the first time

Pleasanton, CA – December 10, 2015 – IntegenX announced today that for the first time in the U.S., results from its RapidHIT® System were used in court to obtain a conviction in an attempted murder case in Richland County, South Carolina. This represents a groundbreaking development in the field of Rapid DNA, as the RapidHIT System is the first of its kind to have results presented and accepted in a court of law.

“DNA testing has increasingly become a critical tool in criminal investigations. The RapidHIT System enhances the utility of conventional DNA tests by making results available to our investigators within 2 hours of delivering a sample to the Richland County Sheriff’s Department (RCSD) Forensics Lab,” said Sheriff Leon Lott. “This increase in speed has proven invaluable for our agency, both in terms of time savings and speeding up the criminal justice process.”

On July 29, 2014, RCSD Deputies responded to a report of shots fired and located a victim with a gunshot wound. Later the same day, a suspect in an unrelated incident was apprehended by Deputies. The arresting officers noticed blood on the suspect’s clothing, a sample of which was turned over to the RCSD Forensics Lab. Using the RapidHIT System, samples from the suspect’s clothing were matched to the victim, enabling RCSD investigators to link the suspect to the crime within hours of delivering the sample to the lab.

Dr. Gray Amick, DNA Technical Leader at the RCSD Forensics Lab, said “The RapidHIT System enhances the level of service we are able to provide to investigators by automating the steps of conventional DNA analysis. The most recent milestone of presenting this data during a trial, to the satisfaction of the court, opens doors for how Rapid DNA can be used in future criminal investigations, both at this agency and at others in the country.”

“It is tremendously gratifying to see our technology assist in the apprehension and conviction of dangerous criminals,” stated Robert Schueren, President and CEO of IntegenX. “This milestone enables other agencies using IntegenX technologies to proceed with confidence that Rapid DNA results can be used from the beginning of an investigation all the way through the judicial process.”

Bill Introduced in the Senate to Allow Rapid DNA Testing to be Performed by Law Enforcement Officials

Pleasanton, California – December 3, 2015 – The Rapid DNA Act of 2015, has been introduced by U.S. Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Diane Feinstein (D-CA). Co-Sponsors to the bill include Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Kirsten Gillebrand (D-NY). This bill is to establish a system for the integration of Rapid DNA instruments for use by law enforcement and coincides with similar legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The Rapid DNA Act of 2015 will clear the way for decentralization of arrestee DNA testing, enabling state and local law enforcement jurisdictions to perform Rapid DNA analysis on individuals meeting current legal guidelines. This would potentially reduce crime, positively impact the current backlogs for rape-kits and other DNA sample analysis and help expeditiously exonerate the innocent.

The bill would be an addendum to the DNA Identification Act of 1994, which established federal DNA labs and authorized the FBI to begin compiling DNA information into the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System (CODIS).

Rapid DNA analysis provides automated, sample to answer results within two hours of collecting a cheek swab DNA sample, making it an effective tool for local and regional law enforcement to quickly identify suspects of certain crimes while still in custody, and exonerate the innocent.

“Rapid DNA technology will enable law enforcement agencies to speed up the process of DNA analysis,” Senator Hatch said.  “Rather than having to wait weeks or months for results, officials will be able to know within two hours whether a sample matches evidence from a crime scene.  Faster results will in turn enable officers to more quickly identify suspects and rule out other individuals as potential suspects.  This bill will not affect how or when law enforcement collects DNA samples, but rather will simply speed up the process of getting results.”

“We are very excited about the prospects of Rapid DNA assisting to reduce backlogs and testing times associated with criminal offender DNA samples,” stated Debbie Smith of Hope Exists After Rape Trauma. “Our country has made significant strides in addressing backlogs of untested rape kits, and by making offender DNA analysis much more efficient, investigators will more rapidly identify these rapists and other serious criminals.”

“The introduction of a Senate Bill represents a significant legislative milestone for the advancement of Rapid DNA technology”, stated Robert Schueren, President, Chief Executive Officer of IntegenX, “Rapid DNA instruments have been used internationally on arrestee suspects while in custody with excellent outcomes. We look forward to advancing such a use case in the U.S.”

500th RapidHIT® DNA Profile Uploaded to UK National DNA Database

Pleasanton, California, October 13, 2015 – The RapidHIT System from IntegenX reached another milestone in technology adoption this week, as the 500th arrestee DNA profile generated on the RapidHIT System by Key Forensic Services was uploaded to the UK’s National DNA Database (NDNAD). Rapid DNA allows personnel with minimum technical training to produce forensic DNA profiles in two hours or less. The goal of using Rapid DNA is to produce the DNA profile while a suspect is still in custody, thereby accelerating the identification and apprehension of criminal suspects more quickly than currently possible with traditional laboratory-based DNA profiling methods. Samples processed on the Rapid DNA platform have been used by eight Police forces across England and Wales. To date, the profiles generated by the Rapid DNA platform have produced a total of 17 matches against the NDNAD, including burglaries and other serious crimes.

“This same day DNA service offered by KFS has provided a great opportunity for forensic services to further support police investigations in a very timely manner. In the past we have battled against the PACE clock to get a quick DNA result to assist the decision making in respect of the arrestee” stated Lisa Lee from Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate. “This time pressure is removed with this same day service and enables more effective direction of investigative resources based on the results achieved. “

 According to Paul Hackett of Key Forensic Services, the faster processing time of Rapid DNA makes a significant difference to the law enforcement community. “What used to be considered an urgent or premium service has become KFS ‘business as usual’. We aim to offer the most competitive and responsive DNA service in the world, and today KFS sets a new benchmark in DNA timeliness.”

Robert Schueren, President and CEO of IntegenX, agrees with Hackett. “The ability of Key Forensic Services to offer such testing routinely, and upload and search results against the NDNAD demonstrates the technology is mainstream and can be done as a part of routine law enforcement. We foresee the vast majority of DNA profiling will be done in real time and, like fingerprinting, will become a common biometric tool in the law enforcement.“

RapidHIT Accredited to Upload DNA Profiles to the National DNA Database

Key Forensic Services (KFS) has become the world’s first forensic organisation to obtain ISO17025 accreditation for the revolutionary DNA profiling device, RapidHIT® and has begun loading DNA profiles generated by the device to the National DNA Database® (NDNAD).

This means that KFS is now offering its police customers a same day DNA profiling service for the processing of mouth swab samples taken from arrestees.

KFS is the first forensic service provider in the world to offer this service routinely, enabling police forces to check an arrestee against the NDNAD on the day of the arrest, before the force is required to release them on bail (with the possibility that they may abscond or re-offend).

The RapidHIT® system, developed by IntegenX Inc. in California, takes approximately two hours to produce a DNA profile, which is a radical reduction of the time taken using traditional DNA processing techniques in a laboratory environment.

Commenting on the introduction of the new same day DNA service, Norman Stringer, Forensic Contracts and Submissions Manager for Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire said: “ I am pleased to see that KFS is now offering this service and it represents a big step forward for the use of DNA technology in the fight against crime. I look forward to the opportunity of utilising the service and to feeling the full impact of the technology in our day to day investigations.”

Says KFS Group Managing Director Paul Hackett: “This new, same day DNA profiling service turns what was previously considered a premium or urgent service into the routine. KFS leads the way in rapid DNA profiling and now offers a same day service as standard. The era of waiting days for DNA results is over. While you wait DNA is here, right now and KFS is delivering this service as standard to all of its existing customers.”

Paul continues: “KFS is leading the way into the future of DNA profiling. In a few years time, the majority of DNA testing will be done away from a traditional forensic laboratory in real time and like fingerprinting, 10 years ago, will become a routine biometric tool in the arsenal of law enforcement. Identity checks using DNA will be carried out alongside fingerprinting as a matter of routine. KFS is proud to be driving a paradigm shift in DNA profiling terms, for the benefit of law enforcement and law-abiding citizens of the UK.”

Arizona Department of Public Safety is First NDIS Lab to Upload DNA Profiles to National Database Utilizing Rapid DNA

IntegenX RapidHIT® system enables DNA identification while a suspect is still in custody

Pleasanton, California, May 5, 2015 – IntegenX announced today that the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) Crime Laboratory is using Rapid DNA technology to test DNA from qualifying arrestees for upload to the national DNA database. This capability streamlines the current process of DNA profile hit-matching against crime scene evidence, to keep communities safer and exonerate innocent suspects. Samples taken from the arrestees were analyzed using the RapidHIT system, which generated a full DNA profile in under two hours that was subsequently uploaded to the National DNA Index System (NDIS). NDIS is the highest level of the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS), which is managed by the FBI and enables the exchange and comparison of forensic DNA evidence from violent crime investigations across the US.

Vince Figarelli, the Crime Laboratory Superintendent at DPS, said, “This technology has already enhanced Arizona Law Enforcement’s ability to fight crime effectively through generating investigative leads. Now we have the ability to upload an arrestee’s DNA profile within two or three hours of an arrest. We now have the potential to assist other investigations while a suspect is still in custody.”

“Using advanced technologies such as Rapid DNA will fundamentally change the way law enforcement screens arrestees for links to unsolved crimes”, stated Louis E. Grever, former Executive Assistant Director of the FBI Science and Technology Branch. “The ability to take a DNA sample from an arrestee, develop a profile 90 minutes, and search that profile against local, state and federal DNA databases while that arrestee is still in custody holds tremendous promise. Not only will countless crimes be solved, but future crimes will undoubtedly be prevented.”

The Scientific Analysis Bureau (SAB) of the Arizona DPS, a statewide agency handling criminal investigations and forensics, was one of the first in U.S. law enforcement to recognize the potential for Rapid DNA technology to generate leads for criminal investigations. This capability will allow the SAB to efficiently determine whether or not a suspect’s DNA profile matches with DNA found at a crime scene while the suspect is still in police custody. Rapid DNA testing will also help exonerate innocent suspects quickly, enabling swifter justice and more efficient use of valuable law enforcement resources. The traditional approach to forensic testing involves shipping samples to centralized laboratories, a process that includes many steps and can take weeks or even months to return test results to law enforcement.

“This expanded application of Rapid DNA testing could play a key role in reducing the backlog of DNA testing in our country”, stated Robert Schueren, President and CEO of IntegenX, manufacturer of the RapidHIT System. “Testing suspects at the time of arrest, akin to fingerprinting, provides timely information so law enforcement can take action on an investigation quickly. It also can relieve some of the routine testing burden on state forensic laboratories, allowing them to focus on more challenging samples such as rape kits. We’re proud to be a part of such a key milestone”.

Bill Introduced to Congress to Allow Rapid DNA Testing to Be Performed by Law Enforcement Officials

Pleasanton, California – December 4, 2014 –H.R. 5789, The Rapid DNA Act of 2014, to establish a system for the integration of Rapid DNA instruments for use by law enforcement has been introduced by Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin. Rapid DNA analysis provides automated, sample to answer results within two hours, making it an effective tool for local and regional law enforcement to quickly identify suspects of violent crime, reduce violent crime and help reduce the current DNA analysis backlog.
The bill would be an addendum to the DNA Identification Act of 1994, which established federal DNA labs and authorized the FBI to begin compiling DNA information in a central database. The database is known as the National DNA Index System (NDIS), and the system for analyzing and communicating data is called the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS). Law enforcement officers around the country would be able to compare DNA samples collected at time of arrest to this central repository of DNA information more quickly identifying suspects linked to previous crimes.
The Rapid DNA Act of 2014 will clear the way for decentralization of DNA technology, enabling state and local law enforcement jurisdictions to perform Rapid DNA analysis on subjects meeting current legislative guidelines.
“Rapid DNA technology has the potential to revolutionize our criminal justice system,” stated Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner. “Quickly identifying violent criminals and exonerating the innocent with Rapid DNA analysis is a powerful tool to help keep our communities safe, while saving taxpayer dollars,” Sensenbrenner added.
“The introduction of this Bill represents another milestone for the widespread utilization of Rapid DNA technology”, stated Robert Schueren, President, Chief Executive Officer of IntegenX, “Rapid DNA instruments are becoming a critical tool for local law enforcement, empowering them to act quickly, exclude irrelevant suspects and bring the right people to justice.” Schueren continued, “IntegenX is committed to bringing Rapid DNA testing to the forefront of our communities where our mission is to provide a timely response to law enforcement.”
