Step-by-Step Guide to Human Identification Products

Life Technologies is now the exclusive distributor of the LGC Forensics ParaDNA® Screening System. The ParaDNA® Screening System enables law enforcement and forensics professionals to screen a small portion of an evidentiary sample in order to obtain DNA-level information with minimal effort.

DNA Sampler kit

The PrepFiler™ kit uses uniquely structured magnetic particles with a breakthrough, multi-component surface chemistry to improve the quantity and quality of DNA isolated from forensic samples. Designed with a streamlined, easy-to-automate workflow, the robust new kit enables inhibitor removal and helps improve the overall yield, concentration and purity of DNA isolated from both routine and challenging samples. This provides greater quantities of highly purified DNA for improved downstream success.

Quantification of human DNA samples is essential for optimal STR performance. Our Quantifiler® kits provide everything you need to quickly and precisely quantitate human DNA. Validated as part of an integrated system, these kits use proven TaqMan® real-time PCR technology to specifically detect human and/or male DNA in samples that may vary widely in terms of DNA source, quality and concentration. The kits detect the broadest range of DNA concentrations (greater than 2,000-fold dynamic range) using a simple protocol that requires minimal hands-on time and results in more consistent STR amplifications.

AmpFℓSTR® kits combine the sensitivity of PCR chemistry with the power of multicolor fluorescence technology to enable robust and reliable results for all human identification applications—even with mixed, degraded, and challenged samples. Many DNA casework and database laboratories have been built using AmpFℓSTR® kits.
