Fairfield, OH, May 08, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- DNA Diagnostics Center (DDC) is pleased to announce that its laboratory has shortened its turnaround time for DNA paternity tests from 5 business days to 3 business days.
This shift marks a major achievement in the DNA testing industry, where a 5 business-day turnaround time is the norm for paternity tests.
“We are leading the way by processing paternity tests in a shorter time while still guaranteeing 100 percent accuracy in our results,” said Jerry Watkins, DDC’s Operations Manager.
Turnaround time refers to the time it takes to analyze DNA samples and produce a DNA test report, after the samples have arrived in the DNA Diagnostics Center laboratory.
“People expect value for their money, and that includes fast DNA test results" said Watkins. "DDC has always been known to provide the highest quality paternity testing, and now we're putting the answer in their hands in less time."
DDC implemented the 3-day turnaround time beginning May 1.
