STACS-DB Enterprise for Forensic DNA Database Laboratories

DNA database labs face the challenge of processing a never-ending number of DNA samples. STACS-DB Enterprise was designed with and for Forensic Scientists to help database lab analysts streamline workflows and increase productivity. STACS-DB Enterprise is the only commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) DNA processing software that can be configured/customized to your specific needs.

All the data you need about your laboratory processes is in one centralized system. STACS-DB Enterprise gives you the tools you need to control access to sensitive information, maintain instruments, manage inventory, avoid using expired consumables, troubleshoot problems, prepare for audits – in addition to streamlining your day-to-day lab processing.

STACS-DB Enterprise provides seamless integration so that you never need to generate any intermediate worksheets or excessive documentation as batches and samples flow through the analytical process. STACS-DB Enterprise allows you to create and process plates at Plate Prep, Punch, Extraction, PCR setup, and for capillary electrophoresis. It interfaces with CODIS and other external systems such as criminal history or AFIS can also be integrated to eliminate data re-entry and increase turnaround times.

The optional Remote Collection Module enables multiple collecting agencies to enter offender data into a web-based application at the time a DNA sample is taken. This reduces work for the DNA laboratory staff and may significantly reduce costs.
