      DNA laboratory coming to Kirksville

      A building in Kirksville will soon be transformed into a laboratory. That's because Human Identification Technologies Incorporated, or HIT, has purchased a building currently housing Lewellens.

      CEO Blaine Kern says the expansion will be broken up into three phases. Each phase will take on about 10,000 feet. Kern says purchasing a building rather than building one, saves a lot of time.

      Even though there's still a lot of infrastructure here, there's still a lot more that has to happen to bring it to fruition and actually have it as a useable and accreditation worthy standards. So we're gonna make sure that we, you know, dot every ~i TM and cross every ~t TM, says Blaine Kern.

      Kern also says the DNA lab is something he takes very serious because the results of the lab work can mean life and death.
