"We are very pleased with the continued progress being made by Dr. Bruce McCord and his team in the development of an improved method for rape kit testing based on our patented PCT platform," said Dr. Nate Lawrence , Vice President of Marketing and Sales.  "The backlog of untested rape kits is a national travesty.  It is imperative that improved methods be developed as soon as possible to help ensure that testing of rape kit samples be completed promptly.  To that end, we remain committed to our support of Dr. McCord and his team."

Dr. Lawrence continued: "We have begun discussions with additional forensic scientists with rape kit testing expertise, in order to expand the number of collaborations we have in this area. We expect these new collaborations to augment and extend the work of Dr. McCord and his team, which can potentially result in accelerating the development and launch of our PCT-based Rape Kit Processing System."

About Untested Rape KitsThere is an estimated backlog of up to 400,000 untested rape kits throughout the United States.  Numerous articles have been published describing the thousands of untested rape kits that have been found on dusty shelves in police storage warehouses and forensic labs nationwide. The added tragedy to these findings is that, in some cases, more rapid and otherwise improved test methods might have led to arrests of perpetrators sooner and, subsequently, might have prevented additional rapes and other violent crimes from occurring.  For example, when the city of Detroit tested the first 600 of their backlog of 11,000 untested rape kits, they reported that the analysis of a rape kit sample collected in 2002 and not tested until 2009 revealed DNA that belonged to a criminal who was in prison for the murder of three women. Unfortunately, the murders were committ
