IntegenX Inc., a leading developer of rapid human DNA identification technology, today launched its RapidHIT™ Human DNA Identification System to the European law enforcement and forensic communities at the 6th European Academy of Forensic Science (EAFS) Conference in The Hague, The Netherlands. Representatives from IntegenX are on site at the meeting to demonstrate the self-contained desktop system and share data produced by its first users.

“This is a very exciting time as we introduce the world's first rapid DNA analysis system to the professionals who will be on the cutting edge of implementing it to identify offenders, clear innocent suspects quickly, and prevent future crimes.”

The RapidHIT System automates and accelerates the process of producing standardized DNA profiles from cheek swabs and other human samples in about 90 minutes. Rapid DNA analysis is a transformative technology that promises to fundamentally change the way investigations are conducted by enabling law enforcement personnel to quickly and definitively link suspects to crimes while they are still in custody.

"We have spent a great deal of time working closely with the law enforcement, forensic and judicial communities to understand their needs and priorities for DNA-based human identification, and are now confident that we are the partner of choice to help the international community to successfully deploy this important advance in crime solving," said Stevan Jovanovich, President and Chief Executive Officer of IntegenX. "This is a very exciting time as we introduce the world's first rapid DNA analysis system to the professionals who will be on the cutting edge of implementing it to identify offenders, clear innocent suspects quickly, and prevent future crimes."
