Bloodstains are one of the most commonly found forms of evidence at crime scenes. Traditional methods of documenting and analyzing bloodstains require a significant amount of time at the scene. The use of laser scanning technology with FARO Scene’s Bloodstain plug-in is a validated and highly efficient method to perform area-of-origin analysis with the benefit of easily incorporating multiple, non-orthogonal surfaces into the results.

Massively parallel sequencing (MPS), which has been described as next generation sequencing, has advanced substantially and offers the forensic scientific community novel and enhanced approaches to DNA typing. While capillary electrophoresis-based technologies have been the standard method for human identity typing applications, there are limitations in this methodology’s resolution, scalability, and throughput. MPS has the potential to address these limitations and expand investigative capabilities and typing success. Because of it, high throughput MPS provides the ability to multiplex multiple types of forensically relevant genetic markers and sequence multiple samples per analysis. Additionally, MPS data may improve interpretation of mixtures.
