As of 26 March 2010, the number of DNA-identified Srebrenica genocide victims has increased from 6,186 to 6,414, according to the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP):
The ICMP laboratory system is rigorously accredited to ISO 17025 by DAkkS GmbH, the national German accreditation body, and ICMP’s Steering Board on Forensic Science gathers together some of the world’s most respected experts in molecular biology, forensic pathology, anthropology and archaeology.
"Of the 13,000 persons DNA identified in the context of BiH, 6,414 were DNA identifications of persons missing from the 1995 fall of Srebrenica. To make these DNA-based identifications, ICMP has collected almost 87,931 blood samples from relatives of the victims, which represent almost 28,964 missing individuals. ICMP has also received 43,729 bone samples from mortal remains of persons recovered from mass graves in the region."
