DNA determination in human tissue

I have human tissue fixed in formalin. I need to do DNA id on this to determine if it is from the same individual that we did an autopsy on. Can anyone tell us who can do that work for us and where are they?

I don't know if this will

I don't know if this will help you out with this exact thing, but we had a company named Agencourt do some sequencing for our lab and I know they have other services as well as sequencing. PCR, primer synthesis, etc. So, perhaps they do nucleic acid isolation too. It wouldn't hurt to ask, if they can't help you out, maybe they know who could.
