Parentage and Abnormality Testing: GenServe UPDATE
The CHA has been working diligently with our designated lab GenServe, owned by Quantum Genetix, to rectify the delays that are causing hold ups on registrations, transfers and other routine member requests. The delays have been caused by changes in technologies that occurred when GenServe was purchased by Quantum Genetix and moved out of the SRC laboratories. This delay has caused nothing but frustration for members and the office staff. We apologize for the frustration and inconvenience that this delay has caused. Please know that the CHA is working diligently to resolve this as quickly as possible. We thank you for your patience as we work to find a resolution to this problem.
