Bode Technology Offers First Rapid DNA Service Delivering a DNA Profile from Evidentiary Samples in Under 90 Minutes

LORTON, Va., Aug. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bode Technology Group, Inc. (Bode), a leading provider of innovative forensic DNA services, announced today the launch of their Rapid DNA Service to provide near real-time DNA analysis.  This service delivers a DNA profile from forensic samples in less than 90 minutes resulting in a fast turnaround of investigative leads for law enforcement agencies holding persons of interest.  Bode's Rapid DNA Service also allows for DNA to be used as a biometric application for identity resolution of detainees at critical screening points.


"The 'CSI Effect' has raised the expectations of the public.  Bode's new Rapid DNA Service, which provides a DNA profile from evidence samples or reference samples in under 90 minutes, has significantly closed the gap between television fiction and real life.  This service also brings reality to the possibility of using DNA as a biometric for identity resolution," said Barry Watson, CEO & President of Bode.  "DNA has been labeled the gold standard in forensic science by the National Academy of Science, and this rapid service makes it applicable in more situations."

Rapid DNA Service utilizes commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment already commonly used in forensic laboratories and capitalizes on improvements to both rapid thermal cycling and direct amplification.  Bode scientists have also made significant advancements in obtaining DNA from virtually all forensic and biological evidence types, including cigarette butts, bloodstains, touch evidence and handled objects.

Mike Cariola, COO of Bode Technology, said, "We have achieved a breakthrough and are the only forensic laboratory providing a service that can successfully obtain high quality DNA profiles from evidentiary items this rapidly.  We have implemented an amplification procedure that meets the FBI's Quality Assurance Standards for validation and sets a new performance level for the forensic community which is a testament to the ingenuity of our scientists." 

Bode's expertise and innovation allows us to offer this industry leading service for evidentiary items.  Other rapid DNA systems will soon reach the market, but require significant capital expenditure while providing lower throughput and are limited to only processing reference samples. In addition, these systems are still pending validation by the forensic community. Bode's Rapid DNA Service provides an immediate solution.  

Bode's Virginia laboratory is one of the few private facilities worldwide to receive ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation from both the American Society of Crime Laboratory Accreditation Board (ASCLD/LAB-International Program) and the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board/FQS for forensic testing.
