DNA Extraction From Semen/Sperm

In the event your sample is positive for semen or sperm, you may elect to proceed with DNA analysis for further confirmation. The most common DNA extractions are the Y-PLEX, specific for male DNA, or the PowerPlex 18 Profile. Each of these extraction types are highly successful of producing a DNA profile . This evidence may then be used for comparison testing to determine if an individual is likely to be a contributor or is excluded as a contributor to the sample. Please see this link for additional types of follow up DNA tests that may be accomplished on a semen or sperm sample.
