Cybergenetics responds to inaccurate Allegheny County crime lab statements

Pittsburgh, PA

Ten years ago, the Allegheny County crime laboratory purchased Pittsburgh-based Cybergenetics TrueAllele technology. TrueAllele computing gets more accurate answers from complex DNA evidence.

Last August, a Pittsburgh newspaper interviewed county crime lab director Robert Huston. They asked him why he hadn't deployed the lab's TrueAllele technology. Mr. Huston gave a "variety of reasons."

In June, Cybergenetics wrote Mr. Huston. The letter showed his statements were untrue. It explained how his "reasons" applied to his own lab's DNA failure. Huston did not respond to the letter, nor did he correct his public misstatements.
