Rapid DNA Service™ -Sample to DNA Profile in Less than 90 minutes

Bode Technology’s Rapid DNA Service™  provides near real-time DNA analysis for law enforcement and biometric applications.   This service can provide a DNA profile from forensic samples in less than 90 minutes, allowing immediate response to critical investigations by law enforcement and can offer fast turnaround for pressing identifications, including persons of interest.

Rapid Results for Critical Investigations

  • DNA profile for evidence or reference samples in under 2 hours

  • Quickly identify investigative leads

  • Fast for biometric applications
  • Meeting the demands of faster DNA results

Applying Rapid DNA Service

Rapid DNA in Law Enforcement:  Holding

    Rapid DNA analysis can be a key asset to help solve crimes quicker.  It is widely known that the first 24-48 hours of an investigation are the most critical.  With Rapid DNA Service, DNA can be a real part of the onset of the investigation and provide clear answers to whether or not a particular suspect may or may not be involved in the crime.  A typical scenario of this application is shown below that demonstrates how Rapid DNA Service could be used in law enforcement.

Scenario:

Law enforcement agency has arrested an individual at 1500 hours who is awaiting arraignment and has 24 hours to arraign or release.

There is critical evidence that could keep that individual in custody, but it has not been matched to the suspect.

Solution – Use Rapid DNA Service

Send the forensic evidence and reference samples to Bode overnight.

Bode will process and deliver DNA profiles by 1100 hours the next day using Rapid DNA Service.

The law enforcement agency can enter in the forensic unknown sample and compare to a local DNA database in the event the samples do not match.

Rapid DNA in Intelligence:  Critical Screening

    Rapid DNA analysis can be utilized as a biometric application for identity resolution of detainees at critical screening points.  In scenarios where an individual is temporary detained at a screening station or short-term holding, biological identifiers can be used to verify identity of the individual against a local DNA database.  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. A typical scenario of this application is shown below that demonstrates how Rapid DNA Service could be used in intelligence operations.

Scenario:

An intelligence agency wants to set up a screening station that utilizes DNA as a near-real time identity resolution system.

The screening station can hold individuals for up to 2 hours before requiring releasing them.

The agency wants to run a DNA profile against a local database of known profiles.

Solution – Use Rapid DNA Service in a deployed environment

Bode will establish a deployed laboratory operation and utilize Rapid DNA Service technologies to allow for the sample to be processed and deliver a profile to be compared against the local database in under 2 hours.
