Identification of Genetic Material

Collaboration with a specialised centre for DNA collection and identification

Εξιχνίαση υποθέσεων με ταυτοποίηση DNA

The private investigation office Pelekasis Nikos and Associates is the first office in Greece that has developed cooperation with a specialized DNA (genetic material) identification center. The collection of genetic material can be used in private investigations and professional investigations for their clarification.  Indicatively we mention:

  • Identification of paternity.
  • Identification of relationship.
  • Cases of theft of house, cars and valuables.
  • Forensic cases.
  • Homicide murder cases.
  • Rape cases.
  • Beatings.
  • Use of drugs or illegal substances.

Methods and tools for collecting genetic material.

The DNA - genetic material is collected with a special collection kit and with appropriate equipment to avoid mixing with other substances and genetic materials. Genetic material may be collected from pure elements such as :

  • Blood
  • Faeces
  • Urine
  • Semen
  • Saliva
  • Hair
  • Teeth
  • Bones
  • Tissues
  • In some cases where contact with the potential perpetrator is not direct.

Genetic material can be collected and identified from sources such as:

  • A glass of coffee-drink.
  • A straw.
  • A cigarette butt.
  • A piece of clothing or underwear.
  • From a water bottle.
  • Any object that has come into contact with the perpetrator's body.

In some cases, particularly in cases of paternity, the individual does not voluntarily give a sample of his or her genetic material. Then the methods used to collect it are collateral.

The value of DNA evidence.

DNA is the ultimate research tool, with the exception of identical twins, no two people have the same genetic material. In this way, DNA evidence collected can be linked to one target or rule out another. For example, during a sexual assault, evidence such as hair, cells or semen remains on the victim's body and in other parts of the site.

The use of DNA as evidence may also require the collection and analysis of elimination samples to determine the exact form of DNA. Samples are taken from anyone who had legal access to the crime scene or contact with the victim and may have left biological material.

When investigating a rape case, it may be necessary to obtain a DNA sample from everyone who had consensual contact with the victim within 72 hours of the sexual assault. This takes into account all DNA found on the victim or at the crime scene to exclude them from the investigation.

Legal status of DNA.

DNA identification has in 99% of cases has full legal standing and can be presented in a courtroom, constituting irrefutable evidence. Our office undertakes the collection of genetic material, as long as this way does not violate the criminal code.
