RapidHIT DNA Profile Uploaded to UK National DNA Database Identifies Dangerous Sex Offender While Suspect in Custody

August 24, 2015 – Pleasanton, California – The revolutionary RapidHIT® System from IntegenX delivered a stunning arrest in the UK last week.   A suspect was arrested for a minor crime and swabbed for a DNA reference sample while in custody. His DNA profile was generated in less than two hours using the RapidHIT System at UK forensic laboratory, Key Forensic Services. Upon upload to the UK’s National DNA Database® (NDNAD), the suspect’s profile immediately matched with a DNA profile recovered from a serious sexual assault case. The suspect, while still in custody, was charged with the previously unsolved sexual assault case. Facing this compelling forensic evidence, the suspect pleaded guilty to serious sexual assault. As a result of the Rapid DNA service supported by the RapidHIT System, the offender was prevented from being released on bail, to possibly reoffend.

“We are thrilled that the RapidHIT prevented the suspect’s release for such a serious crime,” stated Robert Schueren, President, CEO of IntegenX. “To see such a dramatic impact on crime is yet another step in our vision to use Rapid DNA to improve the safety of our communities.”

RapidHIT is the global Rapid DNA platform of choice for expediting DNA profiles within two hours, facilitating the identification and apprehension of criminal suspects quickly. Unlike conventional processing of DNA profiles using non-rapid technology, the RapidHIT System generates a DNA profile within about two hours, using validated, CODIS and NDNAD-compliant technology and chemistry.

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.”

Key Forensic Services Ltd.
Key Forensic Services (KFS) is an established, ISO17025 and ISO9001 accredited forensic service provider, operating from 3 sites across the UK and offering a comprehensive range of forensic services including DNA profiling, to police forces across England and Wales. KFS has exclusive rights within the UK for the marketing of the RapidHIT® rapid DNA system.

RapidHIT® and IntegenX Inc.
The RapidHIT® system, developed by IntegenX Inc. in California, is a self-contained sample to profile system and takes less than two hours to produce a DNA profile, which is a significant shortening of the time taken using traditional DNA processing in a laboratory environment.

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.”

FBI Updates DNA Quality Assurance Standards to Now Include Rapid DNA Analysis

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

FBI Updates DNA Quality Assurance Standards to Now Include Rapid DNA Analysis

 

Pleasanton, California – December 1, 2014 The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has updated their current DNA databasing standards to include an Addendum to the Quality Assurance Standards for DNA Databasing Laboratories performing Rapid DNA analysis and Modified Rapid DNA Analysis Using a Rapid DNA Instrument.

Rapid DNA analysis is used to generate DNA profiles in less than two hours, for use in local and regional law enforcement to potentially fight violent crime with speedy results.  This technology may also be used to prevent human trafficking and fraudulent asylum requests.

“This expansion of the QAS enables improved productivity in forensic laboratories, which can aid in the reduction of the DNA testing backlogs that have been the focus of concern for law enforcement, legislators and concerned citizens for some time now” stated Louis Grever, former Executive Assistant Director, Science and Technology Branch of the FBI. “It is an important milestone as we enable the use of rapid DNA analysis in ways that are actionable for law enforcement in our local communities.”

The Addendum describes the requirements that accredited laboratories performing Rapid DNA analysis or modified Rapid DNA analysis must achieve in order for those results to be considered for inclusion in the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS).  Auditing documents, as well as Lab Checklists are provided to ensure participating labs comply with the Quality Assurance Standards.  These newly developed standards will take effect December 1, 2014.  Additionally, Rapid DNA technology will now be available for purchase with Department of Justice grant funds for the allowable purposes outlined by the QAS.

“This is a significant move forward for the technology“, stated Robert Schueren, President and Chief Executive Officer of IntegenX, “as it provides clarity to the forensics community regarding the use of Rapid DNA instruments and standards for data upload into CODIS from these platforms”. 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.  In many cases, time saved in the lab could mean fewer victims of crime in our communities.”

IntegenX is the market leader in Rapid Human DNA identification with the RapidHIT® System. The RapidHIT System is the first fully automated sample-to-answer instrument for DNA profile analysis that enables forensic experts to generate DNA profiles in less than two hours.

IntegenX® Announces First State-Wide deployment of the RapidHIT® System with SmallPond™ at Arizona Department of Public Safety

Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZ-DPS) Crime Lab Superintendent Vince Figarelli presents first state-wide deployment of the RapidHIT System for real-time matching using a SmallPond database of DNA profiles.

PLEASANTON, California – May 13th, 2014 – IntegenX Inc., the market leader in Rapid Human DNA identification technology, today announced the first state-wide deployment of the RapidHIT System for real-time matching of DNA profiles. At the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors Symposium in Scottsdale, AZ, Vince Figarelli, Crime Lab Superintendent at AZ-DPS, presented an overview of the Department’s state-wide deployment of the RapidHIT system.

Like many state crime laboratories across the country, AZ-DPS faces tight resource and budget constraints that limit the number of DNA samples that they can collect and process in a reasonable period of time. Their solution is to use the RapidHIT System in conjunction with the SmallPond database software to store and search over 350,000 DNA profiles. The simplicity of the system and the database interface has enabled state officials to train law enforcement officers to bring DNA samples to the instrument for processing and generate search results in hours rather than months. This puts law enforcement agencies squarely in control of which DNA cases need to be fast-tracked without impacting the important work being performed by laboratory personnel.

“The Arizona rapid DNA system can provide officers with investigative leads faster than ever before. In cases with appropriate samples, officers can perform the rapid DNA analysis and search the database in hopes of obtaining a preliminary identification of a suspect, rather than waiting weeks or months for laboratory results,” said Figarelli.

“The Arizona DPS deployment is a significant step for US Law Enforcement in preventing crimes with DNA,” commented Robert Schueren, President and Chief Executive Officer of IntegenX. “Generating real-time search results will provide tremendous safety benefits to the residents of Arizona”.

“SmallPond is committed to providing DNA databasing tools that enable law enforcement to maximize the potential of using DNA-based technologies to solve and prevent crimes in their communities”, commented Scott Rulong, President SmallPond, LLC.

The IntegenX RapidHIT System fully automates and integrates all steps necessary to generate a DNA profile in less than two hours. With less than five minutes of hands-on time, an operator can generate up to seven complete DNA profiles. RapidHIT System DNA profiles are completely compatible with standard databases that contain previously generated profiles from reference and crime scene sources. Combining ease of use and rapid turnaround time for DNA human identification will have a high impact toward ensuring the safety of our communities.
