The aim of this study was to investigate the reproducibility of genetic typing of two tetrameric short tandem repeat (STR) loci and the extent of genetic variation in the Swedish population. An automated, fluorescent-based Applied Biosystems 373A sequencer was used for typing of the HUMTH01 and HUMACTBP2 loci (also named SE33). The former locus has seven(More)
This paper describes a collaborative exercise intended to demonstrate whether uniformity of DNA profiling results could be achieved between European laboratories using short tandem repeat (STR) loci. Two different STRs were chosen--HUMTH01 and the AT-rich HUMACTBP2 (SE33). The former locus has only five common alleles, whereas the latter is complex and has(More)
The European DNA Profiling Group (EDNAP) has previously carried out collaborative exercises to determine which STR systems will produce results that can be reproduced by different laboratories. The first EDNAP exercise involving STR systems focused on different types of loci: a simple locus with six common alleles (HUMTH01) and a complex locus with > 35(More)
On January 1st, 2006, the Swedish legislation on obtaining DNA reference samples from suspects and the recording of DNA profiles in databases was changed. As a result the number of samples analysed at the Swedish National Laboratory of Forensic Science (SKL) increased from about 4500 in 2005 to more than 25,000 in 2006. To meet this challenge, SKL launched(More)
An improved method to recover 234Th from depleted uranium has been developed. The method is based on solvent extraction and ion-exchange separations. The final thorium fraction has a high specific activity, about 1-3 PBq/mol Th, which makes it well suited for investigations, where a low thorium concentration is essential. The method is comparably fast, with(More)
