If large samples are to be analyzed, automation is always a desired feature. This holds especially for quantitative assays commonly used in genotoxicity, mutation research and biological dosimetry. But automation has another advantage: exact settings and well established routines allow for direct comparison of results, and minimize any biases caused by misinterpretation of images ...

Bio-dosimetry is a well established procedure to assess radiation damage in humans involved in mass radiation accidents. Unfortunately the recent events in Japan showed that even large accidents are possible, and that a proper radiation damage assessment strategy is crucial in the aftermath of such a catastrophy. Several bio-dosimetry assays are available to quantify DNA damage induced by irradiation, all aiming to estimate the body or partial body dose of the victims in order to apply suitable treatments. There are generally two key requirements for any bio-dosimetry assay...

The use of forensic DNA analysis has become a crucial tool in identifying perpetrators of sexual assault crimes. However, difficulties in analysis arise primarily due to the interpretation of mixed genotypes, if cell separation of the sexual assailant's sperm and other cells is incomplete. The forensic community ...
