Validation of forensic laboratory procedures and instruments is crucial for quality assurance and control. JANUS, a novel automated workstation, was validated for accurate liquid handling at specified volume ranges and to show that PCR amplifications set up by JANUS provide results comparable to amplifications set up manually. PCR amplification of normalized DNA samples was performed by JANUS and compared to manual PCR. The results indicated that JANUS accurately dispensed specified volumes and is competent for PCR.
