Lockheed Team to Release Rapid DNA Tester to DHS, Intelligence Community

Lockheed Martin and Zygem Corp. Ltd. plan to release a rapid DNA analysis platform this summer to forensic, intelligence and homeland security communities.

Lockheed announced the companies’ plan earlier this week to release a version of the platform. designed to simplify and speed analysis of DNA for human identity testing.

The two companies said they were able to develop a compact cartridge device that can complete rapid DNA analyses in under 90 minutes.

The Bethesda, Md-based contractor said the pre-production units are designed specifically for human identification application. 

Lockheed has been working with Zygem on the solution for four years and is not the only contractor looking to improve biometric testing processes.

Northrop Grumman won a contract in November to develop and supply human DNA identification systems to the Army.
