LORTON, Va., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bode Technology Group, Inc. (Bode), a leading provider of forensic solutions announced today their partnership with Dr. Charles Brenner to distribute DNA-VIEW™ software worldwide. DNA-VIEW, an integrated software package for DNA identification, is used by laboratories to perform statistical analyses and DNA comparisons for kinship, forensic mixtures, and paternity identifications. It uses principles that allow for DNA identification from analyses of STRs, SNPs, autosomal DNA, and Y or X chromosome DNA.
"We are excited about our partnership with Dr. Brenner," said Mike Cariola, CEO & President of Bode Technology. "DNA-VIEW is a powerful tool that we use for both our paternity cases and to identify individuals from multiple missing persons projects. Laboratories worldwide benefit by incorporating it into their daily operations."
DNA-VIEW is considered the "gold standard" in determining and calculating the numerical strength of DNA evidence for the large variety of challenges that face a forensic DNA identification laboratory. Under continual development since 1988, DNA-VIEW has been installed in more than 150 laboratories in 40 countries and is fully supported by Dr. Brenner, who will continue to provide training, ongoing technical support and program updates.
"Bode is one of the premier DNA laboratories in the world and has significant experience in missing persons identifications, including mass identifications of individuals from the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Hurricane Katrina, and the Thailand tsunami," said Dr. Charles Brenner.
