Florida Crime Labs Help Eliminate Backlog of Rape Kits

May 09, 2016  | 

Florida Gov. Rick Scott recently signed a law that requires rape kits to be tested within 120 days of submission to a state crime lab. This will also invest $10.7 million in Florida's crime laboratories to eliminate the state's backlog of rape kits

"We want to give law enforcement personnel all the tools they need to keep Floridians safe," said Allison Nunes, chief operating officer of DNA Labs International.

DNA Labs International is a private forensic DNA lab based in Broward County, FL. They specialize in forensic casework analysis using the latest technologies, including Y-STR which is often used in sexual assault cases where the amount of female DNA would typically overpower any potential male data in a sample. Y-STR analysis targets a male-specific Y chromosome.

Since 2008, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) has allowed law enforcement agencies to submit evidence directly to pre-authorized private laboratories for analysis. Any eligible DNA profiles generated are then submitted to FDLE for review and submission to state and national databases.
