New State-of-the-Art FSL opens in Africa

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa officially opened a new state-of-the-art DNA laboratory in Gqeberha, EC, this week, the 3rd FSL in SA. Is this enough, or at least a step in the right direction in dealing with the DNA backlog that has plagued SA for the last few years?

Watch Vanessa Lynch talk to ENCA news about how this will help reduce DNA backlog numbers and enhance turnaround time for cases involving rape or gender-based violence. Additionally, she shares that for the first time, 5-year (as opposed to 2-year) consumable and maintenance contracts have been established with suppliers for the continued analysis process.
