NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Biometric solutions firm Morpho will market IntegenX's RapidHit DNA analysis system to law enforcement and government agencies in certain countries as part of a deal announced today.
Morpho, part of the Safran group, will offer DNA solutions and support services, it said, adding that IntegenX's technology allows it to "deliver powerful solutions capable of accelerating investigations, particularly during the custody period."
The RapidHit system is an automated platform that generates DNA profiles from reference samples. According to Morpho, it is the first rapid DNA technology to use chemistry approved by the FBI, "enabling the upload of DNA profiles to the National DNA Index System," which contains DNA profiles from federal, state, and local participating forensic laboratories.
Financial and other terms were not disclosed.
