The FLDO was founded in 1994 as an independent Dutch forensic DNA contra-expertise laboratory, accredited by the Dutch Board of Accreditation (RvA: L198). The FLDO is specialized in applying very sensitive genotype methods on extremely small quantities of DNA. These methods are not only used for forensic cases, but also for DNA analyses on difficult samples such as ancient skeletons, dental elements, old and stained histological microscope slides etc. with the purpose human identification. The FLDO is also fully equipped for the reconstruction of the various biological relationships (kinships) among (distantly related) humans.
