Published May 28, 2021

KARACHI: Sindh For­ensic DNA and Serology Laboratory at the Dr Panj­wani Centre for Molecular Medicine and Drug Rese­arch, University of Karachi, has resumed its DNA testing service after the Sindh government released the funds for the laboratory.

A spokesman for the ICCBS in a statement said on Thursday that there were only two-day suspensions in the routine testing service despite an extreme shortage of funds due to over 18 months delay in release. ICCBS director Prof Dr M. Iqbal Choudhary thanked Sindh Minister for Health Dr Azra Pechuho for her support.
