Advanced Sampling Techniques
Successful DNA analysis begins with successful sampling. Whether swabbing, cutting, scraping, post-its or tape-lifts, Bode’s skilled scientists are trained in the most advanced sampling techniques to ensure your samples are processed accordingly to maximize success.
Sampling Methods Based on Forensic Evidence
Bode Technology has over two decades of forensic experience sampling, extracting, amplifying and analyzing DNA evidence. We have optimized DNA evidence sampling, even in trace amounts, to recover the greatest number of cells and obtain the maximum amount of DNA from all forensic evidence types. Each case, regardless of evidence type or level of degradation, receives the same level of dedicated attention, forensic expertise, and next level service. We help to bring closure for victims and their families.
Samples collected from firearms
Cartridge casings (spent and unspent)
Samples collected from rootless hairs
Touch DNA analysis
Non-porous solid surfaces
Ropes and ligatures
Body Fluid Detection
Complex casework often benefits from traditional serological methods. Bode’s expertise builds on traditional serology and includes advanced methods such as Alternate Light Source (ALS) with infrared camera and visual examinations. Our technologies isolate potential body fluid stains enabling greater DNA return.
