Take a sneak peek at the new NIST.gov and let us know what you think!
(Please note: some content may not be complete on the beta site.).
NIST has produced several PCR-based DNA Profiling Standard Reference Materials (SRMs) for the forensic community. The primary uses of these materials are validation and calibration of currently used methods for quality assurance purposes. As advances in methodologies occur and new loci become accepted for use in the human identity testing community, there becomes a need to update the certified values for current SRM materials to keep pace. To that end we have updated the Certificates of Analysis for the SRM 2391b PCR-based DNA Profiling Standard and the SRM 2395 Human Y-Chromosome DNA Profiling Standard.
