A revolution in DNA testing

Posting in Technology

IntegenX has developed an all-in-one, portable device for DNA analysis. The system avoids the need to take a DNA sample from one lab to the next for testing.

It's something you might see on the crime drama CSI, but Stevan Jovanovich, the CEO of IntegenX insists their invention is no TV prop. The company has developed an all-in-one, portable device for DNA analysis. The system avoids the need to take a DNA sample from one lab to the next for testing, and eventually, it will fit into a carry-on size suitcase, and will be mobile enough to take on a crime scene or use at a police booking station.
