Bode can offer deployed services to our client’s locations including oversight, documentation, specimen collection, transport, testing and reporting. The program includes partnerships with a national network of service providers and Bode’s core laboratory expertise.
“Bode has been involved in deploying laboratory operations across the world in challenging environments for many years,” said Mike Cariola, President and CEO. “Our team of more than 150 scientists are thankful to be able to offer this expertise to support our mission of public safety during this global pandemic.”
Bode began offering COVID-19 testing to agencies concerned with the safety and welfare of their population, including law enforcement, crime laboratories, nursing homes, and universities. As many of these organizations seek solutions to safely operate, a partnership with Bode can offer a testing solution that meets their needs.
“Quality testing and improving public safety are at our core.

Bode-CARES provides diagnostic tests for the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The test will indicate whether SARS-CoV-2 virus was detected in a specimen, was not detected, or was inconclusive for detection. The Bode-CARES program provides fast testing in support of our clients to ensure safer environments for the organizations and communities we serve. Through Bode’s COVID-19 testing, agencies will quickly know if an exposure, or potential exposure, to coronavirus has resulted in the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
