Found Guilty for Criminal Sexual Conduct!

Another SSDI First!

A definitive test for the presence of a  specific sperm protein is being validated. Reproducibility and sensitivity calibration is in progress for integration into standard protocols. This protein is localized throughout the sperm acrosome and can be detected when microscopic examination has failed. This breakthrough provides significant information to our customers prior to DNA profiling.

Private Investigator Testimonial

We have been using SSDI for years now and have not found any other Serology lab that even comes close! Their professionalism and lab work is superior to labs we have used in the past. As a private investigation firm we are only as good as the resources we can bring to our clients. SSDI has brought us and all our clients satisfaction every time we have utilized them for semen detections and DNA tests. I would highly recommend them.
