The Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF) will soon be utilizing synthetic DNA to help track down criminals.
This will be in a partnership between local distributor Comprehensive Security Solutions Inc and British company Selectamark Security Systems plc.
Yesterday, the two entities, alongside Digicel Barbados, officially launched SelectaDNA at the headquarters of the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Deighton Road, Brittons Hill, St Michael.
SelectaDNA is an advanced forensic marking system in a gel form. It consists of coding which can only be seen under ultraviolet light and with a microscope. (CA)
