Test No. 3: DNA analysis of three hairs from Dr. Guevara's portion
Because some of the strands of hair contained portions of the bulb, three hairs from the portion owned by Dr. Guevara were tested at Laboratory Corporation of America in the Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. Results were received by Dr. Guevara and the Beethoven Center in June 1999. The results that were obtained will be used in the future to match the Guevara Lock to other locks of hair or other material.
Scientists and historians who wish to proposed a project that would involve use of this information should contact William Meredith, Director of the Ira F. Brilliant Center for Beethoven Studies.
