Local databasing has proved to be an efficient tool for helping to generate investigative
leads for high-volume property crimes within a community. Use with Rapid DNA
or private labs make this a self-contained and cost effective program.
State-wide deployment of Rapid DNA instruments have been used in conjunction with
SmallPond databasing to provide very efficient matching against the state's database.
This has proven to be a powerful tool for investigative lead generation.
Countries without a national databasing program can quickly establish one using
SmallPond. SmallPond's high-performance and scaleable search engine easily
enables databasing of millions of profiles.
With the mobile deployment of Rapid DNA instruments into military operations comes
the need for fast and flexible databasing and matching functions. SmallPond's
web-based architecture makes for easy deployment.
Whether identifying battlefield casualties by matching against a database of all
military members or using DNA from living relatives, SmallPond can help with this
SmallPond's familial match features helps to identify missing persons by using the
DNA of close relatives. Applications include identification of deceased during
border crossing attempts and identifying victims of human trafficking.
SmallPond, in conjunction with a Rapid DNA instrument, can be used to verify familial
relationships, while they wait, as families present themselves at the border for
immigration or travel purposes.
The identification of victims of mass disasters is compounded by the shock and grief
of the surviving family members. SmallPond's case-based DVI module can speed
the identification and help bring closure to the tragedy.
Verifying that there was no cross-sample or operator contamination of DNA samples
during lab processing can be an arduous task. SmallPond can help automate
this task saving valuable and improving quality.
