GHEP-ISFG exercise

07/03/2017. Publication of the results from the GHEP-ISFG inter-laboratory collaborative SPInDel exercise. The exercise tested the IDENTIFICA SPInDel kit in 24 participating laboratories from 10 countries organized by the Spanish and Portuguese-Speaking Working Group of the International Society for Forensic Genetics (GHEP-ISFG). The SPInDel method was easily implemented by laboratories using different genotyping platforms, the interpretation of results was straightforward and the SPInDel software was used without any problems. The results prove that the SPInDel method can be applied successfully in forensic casework investigations. The results can be found in Forensic Science International: Genetics 28(2017)219–224.
