Government & Immigration

Rapid DNA is helping governments with a range of issues

Immigration and human trafficking are among the most pressing issues in the world today. ANDE Rapid DNA is the tool to help governments protect their own citizens.

Human Trafficking:

DNA analysis is the only biometric analysis technique that can positively identify familial relationships, making it a powerful tool for fighting human trafficking and kidnapping. DNA profiles from ANDE can be used to verify visa claims, refuse anonymity to traffickers, assist with family reunification, confirm adoption, and assist country-of-origin returns for displaced persons with limited or no documentation.

Disaster Victim Identification:

In the wake of natural or manmade disaster, it can take weeks – often months or even years – to identify victims in the wreckage, in temporary shelters for the wounded or displaced, or in hospitals. For families seeking information, this time can be excruciating. ANDE will significantly aid in timely victim identification to expedite justice and bring closure to families. In addition, ANDE will allow rapid on-site DNA analysis of the unidentified injured and surviving victims, allowing them to be expeditiously accounted for and reunited with their families, minimizing the long and painful waiting period to learn the fate of loved ones.


ANDE Rapid DNA can be a vital tool in a government’s immigration policies, from identifying familial relationships to reduce the trafficking of children to identifying suspects crossing borders illegally.
