Bode Buccal DNA Collection Systems
The Bode Buccal DNA Collector and Bode Buccal 2 are simple, direct collection systems. In a direct collection system, the sample that goes directly into the subject’s mouth is ultimately processed. There is no transfer step required.
Bode Buccal DNA Collector
The Bode Buccal DNA Collector is a unique, one-step collection device designed to maximize the amount of DNA collected and recovered from buccal samples. It is compatible with most chemistries, including direct amplification.
Easy-to-Use Direct Collection
The easy-to-use system can go directly in the subject’s mouth. The simple design helps ensure consistent collection every time.
The Bode Buccal DNA Collector uses 100% cotton filter paper, making it compatible with most commercial STR systems.
Supported on Direct Amplification Systems
Bode Buccal 2 DNA Collector
The Bode Buccal 2** is uniquely designed to improve DNA databanking collection and lab processing efficiency. The Bode Buccal 2 has a collector and card component. The collector snaps into the card and the handle is removed. This conversion makes the collector/cassette compatible with automated punchers and liquid handling robots.
The Bode Buccal 2 is compatible with lab robotics and liquid-handling devices including the BSD®600, Hamilton easyPunch STARlet, Copan CPA200, and Copan CPA300.
Long Term Storage
The Bode Buccal Collectors can be stored at room temperature in a cool, dry environment. To ensure the best storage, the Bode Vault has been developed. The Bode Vault is a desiccated storage system designed to support long-term storage of DNA samples at room temperature. The Bode Vault includes a foil barrier pouch containing desiccants to create an environment for long-term storage and sample protection to create a “micro-environment” that increases sample stability by protecting against degradation caused by environmental effects.

Bode Buccal DNA Collector
The Bode Buccal DNA Collector is supported by all major manufacturers’ (Thermo Fisher Scientific, Promega, and QIAGEN) direct amplification kits. Bode Cellmark’s technical services team can provide recommended protocols and cycle numbers to achieve a high first-pass success rate.
The Bode Buccal DNA Collector is a direct collection system. The sample processed in the laboratory is the same sample that was collected from the individual’s mouth. As a direct collection system, it does not require the transfer step that is necessary when using treated cards.
