Life Technologies has now completed this manufacturing transition improvement and minor modifications have been updated as of January 2013 to the AmpFℓSTR® Profiler®, Profiler® Plus, Profiler® Plus ID, COfiler®, SGM Plus®, Identifiler®, Yfiler® and MiniFiler™ Kits.
The next-generation of thermal cyclers available to HID customers is the Veriti® Thermal Cycler. It features powerful innovations for precise control of your PCR optimization, including a color touch-screen and intuitive interface, plus VeriFlex™ Blocks—six independent temperature blocks—for increased flexibility and precision.
During the development of products for forensic DNA analysis, Life Technologies performed developmental validation and/or verification studies. We published the results of these studies in our User Manuals and Technical Bulletins and also in peer-reviewed journal articles so that laboratories or agencies can reference these results and conduct their own appropriate internal studies.
