Description: Each proficiency test design will include randomly selected neat and/or mixture samples.  All tests will contain multiple known contributor samples, multiple samples of unknown stains and a complex mixture sample.  The DNA results will be collected for these tests.  Serological screening is not required in this test with the body fluid contents of each sample being provided to the participant.  Participants are also requested to perform DNA analysis on the complex mixture sample and determine, using probabilistic genotyping software, if any of the known contributors are present in the complex mixture.   The Forensic DNA with PGS Proficiency Tests will be distributed four times a year (once per quarter).  The distribution of these tests has been structured and scheduled to accommodate laboratories meeting the test frequency requirements of the DNA Advisory Board (DAB) FBI Quality Assurance Standards (QAS). Click here for more information.
