Free DNA Testing for Select Cases to Assist Innocence Projects

Chromosomal Laboratories, Inc., a leading DNA testing laboratory, has announced that it will begin providing pro bono DNA analyses for select cases beginning in early 2005. The new program is designed to help various innocence programs nationwide with the large number of cases awaiting review or funding for laboratory testing.

"This new program of offering free laboratory testing in select cases allows us to assist with the many national innocence programs that currently exist," said Vladimir Bolin, chief executive officer of Chromosomal Laboratories. "We are excited to have the opportunity to help give back to the legal community and general public and hopefully assist in helping to provide closure or assist those wrongly convicted."

The new program will begin accepting applications for testing in January of 2005. Those cases selected will be provided with the most advanced DNA testing services currently available.

"We want to use our experience and resources to help families that cannot afford DNA testing," said Dr. Miller, vice president and chief technical officer. "I hope our example will be followed by other testing companies and that the end result provides for justice to be served."
