BTW!  Why has the US switched from using 13 codis loci to 20 codis loci? In 2012 the FBI proposed to expand the number of Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) core loci in the United States from 13 to 20 short tandem repeat (STR) loci to reduce the potential of these types of matches occurring within the dataset, and to make the US system internationally more compatibility for data sharing, and for statistical accuracy reasons ...Aug 12, 2015

Updating or retesting older samples may become an issue once the new system is in place.
Check with your vendor for advice.
