History

STACS DNA has its origins in Anjura Technology Corporation, which was founded in 1992 to provide information technology consulting services to clients in private and public sectors. One of their clients, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), required software to drive its DNA data bank, and there was nothing on the market to meet their requirements. After successfully creating and implementing a solution for the RCMP, Anjura recognized the need within the DNA community and went on to commercialize that software, which became STACS®, licensing it to forensics labs across North America.

Anjura’s consulting arm was acquired by CNC Global in 2005, at which time STACS DNA was founded as a separate company to focus exclusively on sample tracking and control solutions.
