DNA analysis is scientific and therefore unbiased procedure, providing useful evidence for the prosecution as well as the defense.

Cold Case Consulting

DNA was not used as a forensic tool in the United States prior to 1986. For this reason, the courts are allowing cases to be reopened if evidence or technology unavailable at the time of the original trial (such as DNA) provides information that will exonerate a wrongly convicted individual.

Human Identification

DNA is the only permanent human record that lasts a lifetime. Unforeseen future circumstances may require a fast DNA sample for identification. Such situations can include, abductions, missing persons, paternity and infidelity issues, accidents, fires, and natural disasters

Genetic Technologies (now Sorenson Forensics) is well known for assisting State Attorneys, Public Defenders and private investigators from across the country in a variety of felony casework. Case scenarios in which we assist attorneys range in severity from high profile serial murders and sexual assaults, to those involving sexual harassment, damage to property, accident reconstruction, and home invasion. One-third of the initial suspects are cleared before going to trial as a result of DNA analysis, thereby saving the taxpayers money, the court’s time, and most significantly — the innocent’s freedom.

Sorenson Forensics offers on-site processing and Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) using the latest tools and procedures then subjected to comprehensive testing and analysis performed in our multi-accredited laboratory. Our forensic DNA services have been used to exonerate individuals previously convicted of heinous crimes such as murder and rape at a time before advanced DNA testing was available. Many of these crimes then went on to be resolved with the true perpetrator being ultimately convicted. This service is well known for assisting State Attorneys, Public Defenders, and private investigators from across the country in a variety of felony casework.

Cases in which this service has assisted attorneys range in severity from high profile serial murders and sexual assaults, to those involving sexual harassment, damage to property, accident reconstruction, and home invasion. Contact us below for more info.

Certified accident reconstruction experts may add one more tool to their array of investigative techniques through the use of DNA. Genetic Technologies, Inc. uses DNA analysis to determine the occupants’ positions within a vehicle (driver or passenger status) at the time of impact. By analyzing a deployed driver’s airbag, we can often make such a determination. The force behind a deploying airbag delivers the “punch” necessary to generate and deposit DNA samples on the airbag in the form of nasal mucus, saliva, and/or blood.

The accident investigator merely needs to cut the stained section from the deployed airbag or seize the entire airbag and retain it as evidence until DNA analysis may be performed. Defense strategy in automobile accidents often revolves around the issue of who was operating the vehicle when the accident occurred. With DNA results to confirm the identity of the driver, the issue is no longer a point of contention. Contact us below for more info.

As part of our consulting services, we painstakingly review the entire case file to include all items stemming from the original agency’s findings. A short list of items typically encompassed in the comprehensive review include:

  • All scientific data

  • Crime scene photos
  • “Electronic data” generated by the crime lab’s instrumentation
  • Selection of physical evidence
  • Serology and DNA analysis
  • Statistical analysis

Cold Case Consulting Services

Many rape cases now 15 – 20 years old are now being reopened for DNA analysis. Sorenson Forensics incorporates FBI protocols, and therefore, utilizes the same equipment and analyzes the same DNA systems as law enforcement laboratories. Thus, the generated DNA profile may be compared to the FBI national database (CODIS).

Breathe new life into old cases that became cold due to a lack of physical evidence. Using new DNA technology and many advanced techniques we can now pull DNA from samples before that were too difficult or too small. Contact us below for more info.

Human Identification Services

Until DNA, fingerprints were considered a reliable form of establishing identity. However, fingerprints have been seen to change as a child grows or can be altered by a person’s occupation, scars, or burns. DNA has proved to be the most reliable form of human identification to date.

Having a DNA sample tucked away securely provides peace-of-mind and crucial evidence for whenever you might need to know for sure. We offer a special DNA identification, collection, and storage kit which enables the user to easily provide a sample specimen and then mail it to our laboratory for storage. This offers a foolproof identification that is better than fingerprinting. Contact us below for more info.
