Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $996,237)

This research project will attempt to expand the science of evidence screening beyond pure serology to include source classification. The project has the potential to make a substantial, positive effect on case processing and adjudication through better utilization of existing STR analysis assets. This project aims to accomplish source classification through the use of multianalyte, sample-to-answer screening, and is enabled by Advanced Liquid Logic's Digital Microfluidic technology. The proposed system will accept a sample similar in volume to that required for a confirmatory strip-based test. ca/ncf
