Key Forensic Services chosen to launch IntegenX rapid DNA testing service
Key Forensic Services chosen as preferred partner to launch IntegenX rapid DNA testing service.
KFS has been chosen by IntegenX Inc. (IXI) to launch its ground-breaking rapid DNA Testing technology – RapidHIT® 200 Human Identification System.
This cutting edge technology produces STR profiles for DNA-based human identification, rapidly processing buccal swabs and blood in under two hours.
DNA profiling can be carried out by non-specialist personnel working in ordinary air-conditioned environments with access to a standard electrical supply, rather than in traditional controlled laboratory environments. The system utilises off-the-shelf reagents, takes up very little space, is extremely simple to operate, and produces data that is fully-compatible with the UK's National DNA Database (NDNAD).
