NEC shows off new DNA analyzer, full process takes around 25 minutes - arrives in 2014

Portable DNA analyzer tech from NEC coming out in 2014 is set to ramp things up a notch or fifty

Back in 2007, NEC gave the world a glimpse at portable forensics in the form of a portable DNA analyzer but between then and now, not much has happened, nor materialized.

Well, there's a next-generation analyzer due in 2014, which would put the full DNA extraction, amplification and separation process on a newer chip that meets NEC's goals of producing output within 25 minutes.

 

The new analyzer is set to weigh around 70.5 pounds, and have a cost of $120,000 - so it'd most likely only be for guys like Dexter Morgan with the Miami Dade PD. The new DNA analyzer will come in the form of a small, rolling suitcase - so not only will it be capable of all sorts of lab geek stuff, it'll also look cool while doing so.
