National Association for DNA Collection Management Formed
PHOENIX, AZ, October 12, 2007
Chromosomal Laboratories, Inc announces the formation of a new division, the National Association for DNA Collection and Management (NADCM), and the availability of its first edition of Standard Methods for the Collection of Biological Specimens for Paternity and Relationship Testing.
Dr. Miller, Chief Technical Officer at Chromosomal Laboratories, stated “The relationship testing market has been growing steadily over the last twenty years, increasing on average at a rate of 12% per year. Today, it is projected that the annual number of persons that will participate in some type of paternity or extended relationship test will exceed 1 million.” In sharp contrast, it is estimated that less than 200,000 persons were tested in 1988.
The accuracy of modern DNA testing methods is forcing a change to antiquated paternity laws across the U.S. Many states are adopting laws that level the field for falsely accused men, allowing some degree of financial relief from hardships created from paying support for another man’s child.
A high growth industry tends to attract a dynamic range of players, each with a range of skill sets and ethics. Nicole Bolin, President of Chromosomal Laboratories Inc, stated “As the DNA testing industry evolves and the sophistication of the clientele increases, there will be a need for firms that are offering DNA collection to differentiate themselves through quality benchmarks.” The National Association for DNA Collection and Management (NADCM), a division of Chromosomal Laboratories, Inc, was created with that vision in mind and has culminated in the first edition of Standard Methods for the Collection of Biological Specimens for Paternity and Relationship Testing.
Standard Methods for the Collection of Biological Specimens for Paternity and Relationship Testing is a comprehensive sample collection resource that draws from a number of peer reviewed publications representing industry best practice, including Standards for Relationship Testing Laboratories, 7th edition, published by the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB), Forensic DNA Typing, by John Butler, and regulations from New York State and U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
