SupreMEtric LLC

Increasing Integrity with Innovation


Our Mission

Our mission is to streamline the forensic analysis of biological stains by creating a universal nondestructive method for detection, identification and analysis of all main body fluids.

About Us:

Founded in 2019, SupreMEtric LLC is a small business developing novel methods for forensic applications based on laser spectroscopy and advanced statistics.

How We Began:

This project was supported by Awards No. 2009-DN-BX-K186, 2011-DN-BX-K551, 2014-DN-BX-K016 and 2017-DN-BX-0135, awarded by the National Institute of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice. The opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this website are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect those of the Department of Justice.

This novel technology was originally developed in Dr. Lednev’s research laboratory at the University at Albany, SUNY under the financial support from the National Institute of Justice through the "Research and Development in Forensic Science for Criminal Justice Purposes" Program.

About the NSF’s Small Business Programs

America’s Seed Fund powered by NSF awards $200 million annually to startups and small businesses, transforming scientific discovery into products and services with commercial and societal impact. Startups working across almost all areas of science and technology can receive up to $2 million to support research and development (R&D), helping de-risk technology for commercial success. America’s Seed Fund is congressionally mandated through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. The NSF is an independent federal agency with a budget of about $8.5 billion that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering.
