Proficiency Tests

SERI's Proficiency Test Kits

Your Samples, Your Tests, Your Timing.

Free your laboratory from fixed ship dates and hard deadlines. SERI's proficiency test kits are available in any quantity, any day of the year. Take as long as you need to complete the testing, whether it’s a few weeks or a few months, then email or upload the reporting back to us. With no need to wait for other laboratories or finalization dates, you'll have the evaluated report within days. And with only one complete report per kit provided in a clear one-sample-at-a-time format, managing your completed proficiency files has never been easier.

Choose from any of our standard test kit types:

Standard Database ($200)
Our most popular test, each Standard Databasetest kit contains cotton swab buccal references for three random, unrelated individuals. With reporting available for Mitochondrial, YSTRs and a wide variety of standard STR chemistries, the Standard Database test covers all your amplification and typing needs.

Male Only Database ($200)
Each Male Only Database test kit contains cotton swab buccal references from three random, unrelated male individuals. This test kit is perfect for testing YSTR chemistries. Plus, with reporting also available for Mitochondrial and conventional STR chemistries, there is no need to order a second test.

FTA Card Database ($200)
Each FTA Card Database test kit contains reference blood spots from three random, unrelated individuals on the popular FTA card used by many laboratories for long term storage. With reporting available for Mitochondrial, YSTRs and a wide variety of standard STR chemistries, the FTA Card Database test covers all your amplification and typing needs.

Blood Casework ($250)
Consisting of three unknown stains and two references, the Blood Casework test kit provides a simulated case submission for blood identification, DNA typing (without the complication of a differential extraction) and profile comparison. Reporting offers options for the presence and confirmation of blood, as well as for Mitochondrial, YSTR and STR typing.

Sexual Assault Casework ($250)
Consisting of three unknown stains and two references, the Sexual Assault Casework test kit provides a simulated case submission for body fluid identification, DNA typing (including the use of differential extraction), and profile comparison. Reporting offers options for the presence and confirmation of saliva, seminal fluid, spermatozoa, as well as for YSTR and STR typing.

Body Fluid Identification ($250)
Unique among SERI's offerings, each Body Fluid Identification test kit provides five random samples from an array of neat stains and mixtures ready for the full battery of serological tests. Reporting offers options for the presence and confirmation of semen, saliva, urine, feces and blood (human and non-human).
