DNA To Be As Common As Fingerprinting

01.08.13 10:01 PM

Pretty soon, the government may be able to analyze your DNA in as little time as it takes to take someone’s fingerprints; the technology could be coming to a police station near you.

According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, DNA machines that process DNA in 90 minutes or less and designed to be used in the field by non-scientists exist and are being marketed heavily to the Federal government and State and local law enforcement agencies by key players in the military-industrial complex.

A white paper published by one manufacturer of rapid DNA technology, IntegenX, says:
Rapid DNA analysis is a transformative technology that promises to fundamentally change the way investigations are conducted by enabling law enforcement personnel to quickly and definitively identify suspects while they are still in custody. The technology has the potential to help create safer communities through its many applications from policing to homeland security and defense. With the introduction of the first commercial Rapid DNA systems in 2012, a new standard will emerge in the usage of DNA profiles as an actionable biometric

The FBI got its first “rapid DNA” equipment in September. The agency reportedly has about 10 million DNA records on individuals already stored in databases and will likely significantly expand DNA collection by means of rapid DNA equipment.
