Bode Technology is an active provider of large-scale forensic DNA identity testing services under contracts secured through a competitive bidding process. Bode and its predecessor laboratories have supplied forensic casework analysis services, convicted offender and arrestee sample profiling, criminal paternity testing, mass disaster victim identification, and missing person identification under contract to many state and local governmental agencies and private organizations both in the US and abroad for many years.
If your agency is contemplating release of a solicitation for DNA–based identity testing services, the team at Bode would genuinely appreciate the opportunity to submit a proposal and win your business. We hold the national and state accreditations and certifications required to perform forensics services throughout the US. Bode also offers competitively-priced custom packages of identity testing services to clients who prefer not to pursue the competitive bidding route. Please feel free to contact one of our technical service team representatives using the information below if you would like to receive a proposal to a solicitation or if you would like to discuss other types of available testing arrangements and solutions.
Submit A Case
Before submitting a case for biological fluid identification or DNA testing, please call our technical services team at to discuss pricing, turnaround time, test plan, CODIS eligibility and other considerations specific to your case.
All cases must be accompanied by one of the relevant Case Submission Forms listed below or the evidence will be returned.
Evidence should be packaged and shipped by someone professionally trained in evidence handling and chain of custody and sent for overnight delivery using a traceable courier (FedEx, UPS, etc) with a tracking number and signature required. This will help maintain proper chain of custody for the evidence. Make sure evidence will arrive at our lab from Monday through Friday only. Do not ship to a specific person as this may compromise the chain of custody. For hand deliveries, you must contact the technical services team to set up an appointment for the delivery.
Contacting Technical Service
Please be aware that Bode Technology does not accept firearms (including airguns), drugs or large sums of cash for case submission. Samples (acquired through the use of swabs) from these items may be submitted for testing. Drug packaging may be submitted as long as all drugs have been removed.
