Dr. Richard Selden is the Founder, Chairman, and Chief Scientific Officer of ANDE. He founded the company in 2004 (originally called NetBio) with a vision to move DNA analysis from sophisticated laboratories to the field, where it can have daily impact on forensic identification in law enforcement, military, and homeland security applications.
Since then, ANDE has created a new market by developing products that allow DNA Identification to be performed outside the laboratory by non-technical users. By enabling DNA Identification in police stations, borders, hospitals, and offices, Rapid DNA Identification can impact societal safety in real-time: reuniting families, exonerating the innocent, and identifying suspects in criminal investigations.
As Founder of ANDE, Dr. Richard Selden has been a visionary and pioneer in the development of Rapid DNA technology and the validation testing of the ANDE (Accelerated Nuclear DNA Equipment) Rapid DNA Analysis System (formerly branded as DNAscan for law enforcement applications). The System was proved to be “robust, reliable, and […] suitable for use in forensic human identification of single source reference sample buccal swabs” (Forensic Science International: Genetics). It is the only Rapid DNA Product to receive National DNA Index System (NDIS) approval from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).
