The MiniFiler™ Kit is an adjunct kit to Applied Biosystems autosomal STR kits that are currently used for forensic casework. Loci that drop out in DNA samples, which produce no profile or partial profiles using currently available STR kit technology, may be recovered using the MiniFiler™ Kit. The MiniFiler™ Kit has been optimized to produce results from degraded and/or inhibited samples. What is needed to perform 5-dye analysis in your lab?
