N.M. Univ. becoming forensic testing hub


The Deming Headlight

LAS CRUCES, N.M. — A quiet corner of New Mexico State University could soon become a hub for scientific criminal investigation. Forensic Testing Laboratories is already up and running at NMSU's Arrowhead Genesis Center, but a certification later this year could send the operation into overdrive.

FTL is a sister company to the Genetics Testing Laboratories, a DNA-testing business spun off from NMSU in 2005 and still partially owned by the university. GTL has become very successful, handling nearly 3,000 cases a month. While they conduct a wide variety of tests, the bulk of their business is determining paternity. Both companies, FTL and GTL, share almost two dozen employees, including two NMSU students.
