  • IntegenX, a Hacienda company which has developed rapid human DNA identification technology, has installed its RapidHIT Human Identification System at the new Key Forensics Services Ltd (KFS) facility in Warrington, United Kingdom. KFS is one of the early access sites for the new system and will be the first to provide Rapid DNA identification capabilities to U.K. law enforcement organizations. Rapid DNA analysis is a transformative technology that promises to fundamentally change the way investigations are conducted by enabling law enforcement personnel to quickly and definitively identify suspects while they are still in custody.   

    “The RapidHIT System will revolutionize the provision of DNA profiles, and we are honored to be one of the first forensic laboratories in the world to deploy it,” said Paul Hackett, KFS Group managing director. “We look forward to delivering unprecedented improvements in turnaround times for our U.K. law enforcement customers with this system in our expanded state-of-the-art facility.”
