DNA Diagnostics Center Acquires Sorenson Subsidiary Identigene

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – DNA testing company DNA Diagnostics Center announced today that it has acquired Sorenson Genomics subsidiary Identigene.  

Details of the transaction were not disclosed.

Salt Lake City-based Identigene was established in 2007 and is the first company to offer in-home DNA paternity test collection kits at retail stores in the US, including CVS, Walmart, and Rite Aid. The acquisition includes all of Identigene's assets and laboratory equipment. The business will relocate to DNA Diagnostics' headquarters and laboratory facility in Fairfield, Ohio.

DNA Diagnostics Center offers DNA testing for various applications such as paternity, immigration, family relationships, ancestry, health and beauty, forensics, and animal traits. Its lab is both CAP- and CLIA-accredited.

"We are excited about the acquisition of Identigene," said DNA Diagnostics President and CEO Connie Hallquist in a statement. "They have built a strong brand that consumers trust."
