Orchid Cellmark Applauds Expansion of Federal Forensic DNA Identity Testing to Include All Arrestees
Date:4/18/2008

ials to solve crimes more rapidly and will also help prevent the repeat offenses committed by some criminals before they are convicted."

Thirteen states have already passed laws to include many arrestees in their DNA databanks, including California, Virginia, Maryland, Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Alaska, Arizona, Kansas, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, and Tennessee. California will begin collecting DNA from all felony arrestees in 2009, and legislation expanding forensic DNA testing is currently under consideration in an additional 21 states.

Mr. Bologna continued, "While we appreciate the concerns of some groups that database information could be misused, our long experience in working with the states and the federal government gives us confidence that the possibility of abuse is low, especially since the profiles included in the database do not include information relevant to health or other genetic traits, and the new regulations will specifically preclude these types of uses. As a long-established leader and innovator in the provision of forensic DNA testing services, Orchid Cellmark intends to work closely with appropriate law enforcement officials to help supply the expanded DNA testing expected to result from the new federal regulations, which we believe will further the goal of improving the effectiveness and equity of our criminal justice system."

Orchid Cellmark, one of the most respected forensic DNA testing firms in the world, is the only publicly traded firm focusing specifically on forensic DNA and other DNA identity testing.

Orchid Cellmark's U.S.-based forensic laboratories have received the prestigious accreditation of the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board (ASCLD/LAB). Orchid Cellmark's laboratories are also certified by the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) and its Dallas and Nashville forensic laboratories are accredited to the International ISO/IEC 17025 St
