Casework Experiences with a Multiplex STR System
DNA profiling using Short Tandem Repeat (STR) Loci has been used in casework at the Metropolitan Police Laboratory since August 1994. The system used is that devised by Kimpton et al.(1994). This uses multiplex amplification of four loci, (HUMVWA31, HUMTHO1, HUMF13A1 & HUMFES). Casework data have been collected over the first nine months of operation and a summary of the results is given in this paper.
