DNA Solutions Gains AABB Accreditation

NEW YORK, April 28 (GenomeWeb News) - DNA Solutions said this week that it has achieved Relationship/Parentage Testing Accreditation from the American Association of Blood Banks.

 

DNA Solutions provides genetic testing services for paternity, grandparenthood, sibling relationships, immigration, and forensic analysis.

 

"Many court systems and government agencies will only accept results performed by an AABB accredited laboratory, so this accreditation will allow DNA Solutions provide services to these additional markets," said Thomas Kupiec, president and CEO of DNA Solutions, in a statement.
