Strand developed and markets the know error® system. This patented system confirms that surgical biopsy samples being evaluated belong exclusively to the patient being diagnosed, arming physicians with the critical information they need to proceed confidently with treatment recommendations.

In using the latest applications of cutting-edge forensic DNA science Strand provides DNA testing to ensure patient safety and diagnostic accuracy.  DNA Specimen Provenance Assay (DSPA) can prevent Specimen Provenance Complications (SPCs) in the diagnostic cycle. Implementation of the know error® system helps eliminate devastating events associated with misdiagnosis such as unnecessary treatment for a healthy patient and/or delayed treatment for a patient who has cancer. Patients can order the Know Error DNA test (a DNA fingerprint comparing their reference swab to the the biopsy tissue tested) to confirm the biopsy is free of another’s DNA.
