- •Forensic Science SA implemented STRmix™ in 2012.
- •STRmix™ has deconvoluted all mixed DNA profiles at FSSA since implementation.
- •All 2019 STRmix™ analyses were interrogated to identify trends across the dataset.
- •All pairwise comparisons of deconvolutions identified common DNA donors.
- •32 groups of linked cases were identified and could be used as police intelligence.
