There was a recently developed micro molecular test that had not yet been applied, though. Lisa started the test and documented it on her hard drive and on the test log. The test would take at least six hours, time enough for a first check of the blood sample. John’s assistant actually had written ‘partially human’. Lisa frowned. The applied tests were standard procedure in 1970. Where did she learn her profession! Lisa started a recently established analysis and called it a day.
