[/one_third][two_third_last]The Problem:

sample mix-up floaters/tissue fragments from different patients on same slide transcription errors incorrect labeling lost labels

The Result:

possible misdiagnosis

The Solution: verIFI

match the sample to the patient using DNA-based identity testing

Advantages of DNA testing:

  • DNA profiles are unique
    (except for identical twins)
  • Validated method
  • Fast turn-around time
  • Used world-wide
  • Cost effective
