What is this standard about?

BS ISO 18385:2016 is the world’s first international standard on forensic science and outlines the requirements for the manufacture of kits and consumables for DNA analysis by the global forensic science community.

Who is this standard for?

  • Police forces and forensic science laboratories
  • Manufacturers for the forensic DNA community

Why should you use this standard? 

ISO 18385:2016 is being recognized internationally as setting the standard for the forensic DNA community.

The standard is important because:

  • In forensic DNA analysis contamination is inevitable and the quality of consumables used in the recovery and processing of DNA material has been recognized as a route for the introduction of contamination
  • It helps to avoid incidents such as the “The Phantom of Heilbronn” or “Woman without a Face” 
  • End users will be able to purchase consumables with confidence from manufacturers meeting the standard and satisfy the requirements of their own accreditation to ISO 17025 and manufacturers will understand what is required of them to service this market
