Specialized DNA Collection and Handling Training on March 1

DNA testing can provide answers to questions, in areas such as biological relationship, genealogy, ancestry, medicine, forensic science and more. Successful and reliable testing requires proper collection and handling of the DNA sample to avoid breakdown, contamination and unreliable results.
As a solution focused company, Concurrent Technologies and Services, along with LSD&FC, is committed to bringing tailored DNA and Forensics solutions closer to individuals and organizations that need it. It is on this premise that we are organizing a specialized training on March 1, 2022, for our strategic DNA Partners in Abuja.
Our partners are reputable hospitals and labs located in various parts of Abuja. They will be adequately trained in many areas including, DNA collection, packaging, preservation, chain-of-custody, and client relations, after which they will become Certified DNA Collection Centers.  
This exercise will ensure that the community they serve will have access to experienced DNA test providers, state-of-the-art technologies as well as accurate and reliable DNA results. It brings our services closer, and makes it easily accessible to our customers in the Federal Capital Territory.
