Verogen, Inc. is a forensic genomics company based in San Diego, CA.  Verogen provides state of the art forensic genomics solutions, including latest generation DNA sequencers, chemical reagents for DNA testing, software for human identification, as well as laboratory validation and implementation services.  The Verogen technology was originally developed at Illumina and was spun off to form the first sequencing company solely dedicated to forensic science. Verogen assists forensic and research laboratories and other agencies in the search for the truth. Using proprietary next-generation sequencing technology, Verogen can dramatically increase data recovery from challenging biological evidence and generate valuable investigative leads to assist law enforcement agencies in complex cases.  Verogen technology is currently in use at several Federal Law Enforcement and Military Laboratories, including the FBI and Armed Forces DNA Identification Laboratory (AFDIL).

Core Competencies

State of the art forensic genomics solutions, including:

  • MiSeq FGx™ DNA sequencing instrumentation
  • ForenSeq™ Universal Analysis Software
  • ForenSeq™ DNA Signature Prep Chemistry
  • Laboratory Validation and Implementation Services

Forensic Genomics Solutions that enable:

  • Identification of individuals with severely degraded DNA and/or extremely small amounts of DNA
  • Identification of individuals from complex DNA mixtures – where multiple individuals have contributed biological material to an object or evidence sample
  • Estimation of biogeographical ancestry and physical characteristics from small quantities of DNA for investigative leads

The Verogen MiSeq FGx™ Forensic Genomics System is the first fully validated, massively parallel sequencing (MPS) solution designed for forensic science. This system can simultaneously analyze DNA sequence and sizing data for a wide range of forensically relevant markers, delivering far more insight than legacy methods with higher resolution than ever before possible. This approach enables forensic examiners to develop more detailed profiles from degraded, mixed, and limited biological evidence samples; and to address a wider range of questions, such as biogeographical ancestry and physical characteristics, in a highly efficient DNA-to-answer workflow. 

Verogen is more than a technology provider, however. The company possesses deep forensic domain expertise, with proven capabilities in training, validation and workflow integration to assist agencies in every aspect of implementation.
