Quality of the researches conducted by DNA laboratory, is confirmed with the international certificates of the European association of judicial geneticists. Annually the method of the analysis of DNA investigates over 3 thousand samples and biological traces, in 2008 530 examinations are executed.
Efficiency of application in expert practice of the DNA technologies caused making decision on their gradual introduction on local level.
