Century of Amazing Science
Safety in numbers
Technology advancements enabling borderless data sharing have made significant impact in the area of human identification. National and international DNA databases empower law enforcement with information that not only helps in solving crimes, but also in identifying missing persons and victims of natural disaster. By sharing international data through powerful DNA databases, countries around the world can unite to make the world a better place for everyone.
Featured technology: GlobalFiler® STR kits
As global forensic DNA databases rapidly expand, so does the need for more discriminating STR multiplexes that can maximize loci overlap. That’s why GlobalFiler® STR kits incorporate as many commonly used loci as possible – all in a single multiplex reaction. GlobalFiler® kits contain all of the STR loci commonly used in major global databases, including all markers recommended for inclusion by the CODIS Core Loci Working Group and those markers commonly used in Europe.
GlobalFiler™ STR Kits combine reduced amplification time with maximum data recovery power. As part of the only fully integrated and validated forensic workflow, this new 6-dye, 24-loci technology is designed to deliver superior performance. And, it’s backed by Life Technologies training, service, and support.
