The company gained much press in 2005 when UK politician David Blunkett bought shares in the company, shortly after which he became Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. He failed to declare his interest in the company, which ultimately led to his resignation from the Cabinet in November 2005.
The company went into liquidation on the 8th December 2005 and was bought by an American based DNA testing laboratory.
