What: SRM 2391d represents the fifth renewal of the original material first released in 1995. It is comprised of five DNA samples.
Why: It is intended primarily for use in the standardization of forensic and paternity quality assurance procedures for genetic testing, for instructional law enforcement or non-clinical research purposes, and for quality assurance when assigning values to in-house control materials.
Who: The customers that use this SRM are U.S. local, state and federal crime laboratories, academic institutions, private sector DNA testing companies, paternity testing laboratories, instrument and assay commercial manufacturers, and other national institutes.
How: Highly characterized set of DNA samples used by forensic and paternity testing labs to calibrate and validate their DNA typing workflows. Genetic markers were certified by next-generation sequencing (NGS) and capillary electrophoresis (CE).
