Post Conviction DNA Testing

Presenting new DNA evidence in post-conviction cases requires use of advanced sampling, extraction, and amplification technologies, particularly on degraded samples.

Exonerating The Innocent with Advanced DNA Testing

Bode Technology’s advanced solutions support attorneys and innocence projects working to exonerate the wrongly convicted.

By applying the latest innovations in DNA sampling, extraction, and amplification, Bode scientists can effectively obtain probative DNA results even from old and degraded samples. Bode uses a combination of advanced sampling methods and DNA extraction methods that are optimized for the recovery of degraded DNA. With more DNA recovered, Bode then applies the latest analysis technology with a full suite of testing options including STR, mini-STR, Y-STR and mitochondrial DNA. Additionally, Bode also offers forensic investigative genetic genealogy services.
