A recent decrease in turnaround time for DNA processing has played a vital role in closing crime investigations in Cincinnati and throughout Ohio.
As a result, forensic scientists working at the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation are processing DNA cases in record time — turnaround time has been reduced from approximately 125 days in 2010 to 25 days in 2012.

Approximately 21 scientists were added to the BCI lab staff, DNA testing robots doubled and there is continuous quality improvement.
