Forensic DNA and biology

Our services to the Queensland Police Service include:

  • assisting with missing persons cases and victims of disaster incidents
  • analysing and profiling 30,000 forensic DNA samples annually from alleged criminal investigations
  • examining and testing biological items from alleged crime scenes to generate a DNA profile
  • maintaining the reference sample database of persons associated with alleged offences.

Forensic DNA profiling and examinations are performed under strict, quality-controlled conditions by qualified and professional personnel.

We also provide training and advice to the Queensland Police Service, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Coroners Court of Queensland, as well as impartial expert evidence in all levels of the judicial system.
