What STACS-CW customers are saying about STACS DNA sample processing software:

“STACS removes one giant bottleneck.”

“STACS-CW allows us to look at whole case cradle-to-grave.”

“Now with STACS and [robotics], we can spend time screening evidence for the next DNA batch.”

“If people sit down and look at their process, they would understand STACS is the way to go to fix their process.”

“[With STACS DNA,] we were able to customize the program to meet our needs.”
