Recent media coverage has highlighted the fact that in the Paternity Testing market some companies are offering a DNA result in 5 hours.

For some time now Key Forensic Services (KFS) has been providing its Police force customers with a DNA profile, taken from a suspect in 90 minutes. Using the ISO 17025 accredited RapidHIT 200 instrument.

The instrument is portable and can be used in any location including at the crime scene.
