Improve results from complex DNA mixtures

The analysis of complex DNA mixtures containing three or more DNA profiles is a challenge in forensic DNA analysis. 

Asunder is a proprietary method for interrogating mixtures of nucleic acids, it can identify the number of contributors in a mixture and their DNA profile, without any knowledge of the contributors or the contributors’ genotypes. Results have shown significant gains over existing methods of analysis.


  • Separates complex DNA mixtures
  • Provides the probability that certain profiles created the mixture without any knowledge of the contributors
  • Removes any potential bias of known suspect or victim genotypes
  • If a potential contributor’s genotype is known, comparison can provide supporting evidence that it is the most likely
