CYFOR expands capabilities with DNA testing services

DNA testing services

CYFOR launches DNA testing services through Biotas.

Following sustained growth during the pandemic, Manchester-headquartered Digital Forensics and Cyber Security experts CYFOR have expanded their services, offering DNA relationship testing under the brand name Biotas.

Designed as a new division firmly under the wider CYFOR group, Biotas will operate from a Ministry of Justice and ISO:17025 accredited laboratory, providing a range of DNA relationship testing services, such as Paternity, Maternity and Grandparentage testing.

Lawrence Perret-Hall, Commercial Director at CYFOR & Biotas commented;

Following years of sustained growth, we feel it is the right time to diversify our client offering by stepping into a related, yet new and thriving sector. This journey starts with DNA testing, but over the coming months and years, we intend to add a suite of complementary offerings, including Toxicology and other Wet Forensics disciplines. We are enormously excited by the new opportunities this will bring to the CYFOR Group.

We have established an extremely easy-to-use website with a specific pathway and product area for legal representatives to navigate and purchase on behalf of their client. All products within our ‘legal services’ product section fall within Legal Aid Authority rates, so a DNA test can be requested and conducted without delay.

Biotas will cater primarily to legal professionals and local authorities, a client base with which the business is already well established. Biotas will also serve members of the general public seeking ‘peace of mind’ testing.
