DNA Urn / Urn

DNA Urn

In recent years, various natural and man-made disasters caused a large number of deaths. The complex environment in disaster areas and the difficulty of corpse preservation prevent a lot of people from finding their lost families, especially the dead relatives.
DNA Urn is designed to solve the problem. Taking use of the DNA detecting technology, we can get the victims DNA information. After cremation, the ash would be placed into the urn labeled with the victim’s DNA information. In this way, his families can easily find him after the disaster.
