Applied Biosystems has implemented significant improvements to its primer manufacturing process, and has incorporated these improvements into the Identifiler® Plus Kit. These improvements yield purer primers that generate fewer dye artifacts and thus help users obtain cleaner baselines. This feature helps enable the analyst to interpret results, including results obtained from difficult mixtures, with maximum confidence and efficiency.

Minimized Occurrence of PCR Artifacts

A comparison of negative control reactions for the Identifiler® Kit at 28 amplification cycles, the Identifiler® Plus Kit at 28 amplification cycles and the Identifiler® Plus Kit at 29 amplification cycles. The improved primer manufacturing process incorporated into the Identifiler® Plus Kit enables users to obtain significantly cleaner baselines.
