Indianapolis: New Private DNA Lab Opens Today

From the IndyStar.com: A former Marion County prosecutor and a former leader at the local crime lab will officially open their private DNA testing laboratory (Strand Analytical Laboratories) in Indianapolis today....Experts say the private lab, which would be the first of its kind in Indiana, could help address the problem of delays and backlogs in DNA testing locally and across the country.  Mike Medler, director of the Marion County crime lab, welcomes the new venture and hopes it will help cut the county's current backlog of 111 DNA tests....Private labs across the country are being called upon to help public labs catch up on DNA testing. Long testing times have often been blamed for causing trial delays" among other problems. Story... [Mark Godsey]
