Abstract

The State of Texas DPS Regional Crime Laboratory in El Paso has an ASCLD/LAB accredited forensic laboratory that incorporates novel techniques to provide timely and accurate results. A performance evaluation of the Vivacon® 2ml in comparison to the Centricon® 100 demonstrated that the Vivacon® is a suitable replacement for the discontinued Centricon® device. An internal validation of the TECAN Freedom EVO® 150 demonstrated it is capable of setting up reactions for the quantification and amplification of casework samples for more effective sample processing.
