Through a Six Sigma approach and strong project management skills, this team successfully produced a novel multiplex assay, male DNA profiling tool. This tool has filled the gaps faced in commercially available male DNA profiling tools worldwide in forensic laboratories. One of these gaps was the weak power of discrimination between relative and nonrelative male individuals, therefore decreasing its value as evidence in identification of male individuals. Previously, the power of discrimination was shown up to 85 percent, whereas the novel male DNA profiling tool innovation led to increase the power of discrimination reaching more than 99 percent between male individuals. One of the advantages of this tool was the ability to differentiate between male members of the same family, which was an absent feature in previous tools. Therefore, such male DNA profile is highly valuable as evidence in convicting male suspects, especially in sexual assault cases. This innovation has helped identify, exonerate, and convict individuals in more than 124 cases and build up a database comprising more than 4,000 male DNA profiles. In addition, the cost of analyzing the samples was reduced by approximately 80 percent compared to commercially available male DNA profiling tools, which helped save 200,000 AED annually. The tool was successfully validated in more than 13 forensic and institutional laboratories around the world. A patent was filed for this innovation and a total of 19 peer-reviewed article were published relevant to it.
