"New York City's DNA lab has done such speedy tests for very rare high-priority cases, said Robert Shaler, director of the department of forensic biology in the office of the city's chief medical examiner.

"'If you have a single sample and you stop everything else you're doing, you can get it done,' he said. That would occur, for example, if police have arrested a suspect and can hold him only temporarily unless DNA matches him to a serious crime, he said.

"'I'm not surprised' by reports that Saddam had been identified through DNA less than 24 hours after his capture, Shaler said Sunday."
