Just we always wanted, a DNA tester to call our very own! We've been waiting for them to break that crucial $15k pricepoint, and now Spartan Bioscience has finally accomplished such a feat with its Spartan DX Personal DNA Analyzer. The thing can do 4 samples at a time, and takes about 30 minutes to run a Polymerase Chain Reaction to identify the perp. Unfortunately, Spartan claims the device isn't approved for anything beyond research use, but that shouldn't stop us from doing a bit of home-based forensics: no more name calling, we'll know once and for all who stole the cookie from the Engadget HQ cookie jar.
