Ally Laboratories is a private, women-owned laboratory that aims to solve multiple problems within the forensic DNA community.
Ally Laboratories will operate through an indirect sales relationship with our clients who represent the injured party. Our laboratory will provide superior services by eliminating any possibility of bias by using a proprietary LIMS system. Also, our DNA procedures uniquely separate us from other laboratories because of our specialized experience in ancient DNA techniques and stable isotope analyses.
Ally Laboratories is co-owned by Annie Cook, MS and Ellie Fair, MS. Annie will stand as CEO and has 6 years of experience as a Board Director for a large company with over 900 clients and 1,500 workforce members. Ellie will stand as COO and has over 12 years of scientific experience managing laboratories and participating in audits/inspections. The owners have a combined total of 7 degrees in forensic science and 18 years of work experience. Every 92 seconds, someone is sexually assaulted within the US--ever y 92 seconds; that equates to over 345,000 assaults per year. Currently, the US has a backlog of sexual assault kits awaiting testing numbering within the 500,000’s. Include the added 100,000+ assault kits that are per formed annually and you can star t to see the void that needs to be filled. Due to statute of limitations and the lack of laboratories, these need to be tested ASAP. Ally Labs isn’t content with only testing rape kits-we aim to change the community by preventing sexual assault using a date-rape drug detection device (grant application pending) and providing a better collection experience through sensitive sexual assault collection kits and skilled examiners.
