(CBS News) The University of Utah will provide free paternity testing to individuals who used a fertility clinic on the campus years ago after reports surfaced that one client may have been impregnated with sperm from a former employee and not her husband, a spokesperson told CBS News.
The University of Utah said in a statement that the school had been investigating “credible information regarding the possible mislabeling or tampering of a semen sample” since April 2013.
People who used the clinic, Reproductive Medical Technologies Inc. (RMTI) -- which is no longer in business -- between 1988 to 1993 or the university's adjacent laboratory can call the University of Utah Andrology Lab to schedule testing. RMTI was not owned or operated by the university, but was contracted for preparing specimens and semen analysis. Three of the owners of the facility were university faculty and staff members.
