Ohio Increases Spend on DNA Testing Robotics

State crime labs in London and Richfield, Ohio have been using robots designed to test DNA for a year now. On the anniversary of their joining the labs the Ohio Attorney General Richard Corday has decided to double their number by allocating $1.36 million in federal grants and state funds.

In the time frame of October 2009 to August 2010 the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation in Richfield got 218 blood samples tested and out of those 122 of them got a hit. This gave the crime lab robot testing a 56% result pointing to a specific suspect.

The new half million dollar robotics systems are now being used by the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation to help solve property crimes. Currently there are four robots operational and the crime lab hopes to double that number to deal with massive backlogs.
