At Bode, we continue to offer innovative solutions such as BodeDirect Outsourcing, Same-Day DNA Service, and 90 minute or less Rapid DNA Service. We are leaders in the use of touch DNA analysis methods, backlog reduction strategies, serology/screening techniques, and STR, Y-STR, miniSTR, and mtDNA testing.

Bode teams have been active in missing persons and mass disaster identification projects worldwide, working with government and non-government organizations to assist in identifying victims of war, terrorism, and disasters. These conflicts often lead in trying to obtain definitive information from challenging and degraded samples which we have developed optimized techniques to overcome. Optimized procedures for dealing with degraded and environmentally challenged samples also make us the ideal resource for solving cold cases.
