Forensic regulatory bodies constantly need new and more efficient forensic testing techniques and technologies across a wide range of disciplines including genetic and biochemical analysis of forensic samples. Forensic analytical labs are required to deliver scientifically and legally sound and accurate evidence, as such, laboratories are facing a pressing need to process an increasing number of samples collected from diverse crime scenes. To meet the rising need for sample processing, forensic laboratories are implementing the automated liquid handling workstations for higher throughput of samples for DNA isolation, setup of PCR reactions for genetic analysis, and purification of toxins or drugs. Aurora is proud to offer the robust automation and high reliability required by forensic processing labs.
