Rapid Processing of Swabs from Casework Samples Using Casework Direct Kit, Custom

Screening for sperm in sexual assault samples is a laborious process with limited sensitivity in comparison to male DNA detection by amplification.
Direct amplification of casework samples reduces both cost (labor & reagent) as well as the for potential DNA loss during purification, a special concern with low template samples.
The Casework Direct Solution Kit rapidly generates lysates from casework samples that may be amplified with the PowerQuant®System to screen sexual assault samples for male DNA and to normalize human template for STR amplification with one of the PowerPlex®Systems.
