Massachusetts Orig3n's 'DNA Day' at Ravens Game to Undergo Federal and State Scrutiny

Published: Sep 19, 2017

A Massachusetts biotech firm still intends to give away DNA test kits to fans at a Ravens game this season, according to the team, but the promotion first must undergo scrutiny from a federal agency and the state.

The “DNA Day” event, scheduled for last Sunday’s Ravens-Cleveland Browns game at M&T Bank Stadium, was postponed after the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services raised questions with the state about approvals, state and federal officials said.

The federal agency said Monday that Boston-based Orig3n may be required to obtain federal certification to conduct such testing.
