Notes: These authors present the results of the 2000 and 2001 Paternity Testing Workshops, which were held to compare DNA typing results and laboratory practices between laboratories. Participating labs received a questionnaire about their processes and blood samples for DNA analysis. The results were compiled, and 91% (2000) and 86% (2001) of labs used PCR-based methods for DNA typing, and typing errors occurred in 0.3% (2000) and 0.1% (2001) of the submitted results. The PCR-based STR-typing kits used in this study included the PowerPlex® 16 System and F13A01, FESFPS, F13B, LPL Multiplex (Fluorescein). (3834)
