Sindh Forensic DNA and Serology Laboratory (SFDL) at the Dr. Panjwani Center for Molecular Medicine and Drug Research (PCMD) of the University of Karachi has resumed its DNA testing service after the Sindh government released funds for the laboratory.
The International Center for Chemical and Biological Sciences (ICCBS), University of Karachi (UoK) announced this on Thursday. The Spokesman of the ICCBS, University of Karachi, in a statement, said that there were only two-day suspensions in the routine testing service due to an extreme shortage of funds due to over 18 months delay in release.
