STRmix Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of New Zealand's Institute of Environmental Science and Research, has launched STRmix NGS, forensic software that employs a fully continuous approach for interpretation of next-generation sequencing-generated short tandem repeat (STR) DNA profiles. This allows users to research the potential implementation and validation path of probabilistic genotyping alongside NGS chemistries and sequencing equipment, the company said. While not currently available for case work, STRmix NGS can help forensic laboratories understand future use of such evidence, the company said. The new product builds on STRmix software, which was launched in 2012 and uses well-established statistical methods to build millions of conceptual DNA profiles.
