DNAConnect bridges the gap between law enforcement investigators who want to use Rapid DNA to generate leads and forensic scientists who need to ensure the integrity of Rapid DNA results. DNAConnect integrates non-scientists deployed in the field with DNA analysts in crime laboratories through an automated reachback support system.
Initially funded through a Department of Homeland Security Small Business Innovation Research award, DNAConnect was conceived as the DNA Reachback Support System (RBSS). Based on feedback collected as part of a National Science Foundation grant, SNA enhanced RBSS to meet the needs of state and local law enforcement agencies. The resulting product, DNAConnect, combines years of forensic science and laboratory operations expertise.
Purpose-built by forensic scientists to provide robust support to non-scientific personnel, DNAConnect produces high-quality investigative leads from samples collected at crime scenes and tested on Rapid DNA instruments.
SNA’s leadership team is committed to building a company that empowers clients to achieve optimal performance in applying science and technology to identify people, substances, and threats. Our leadership team combines decades of experience with a deep commitment to hiring, nurturing, and retaining world-class scientific, technical, and professional talent.
