Rapid and Selective Extraction of Male DNA from Rape Kits and Other Forensic Evidence Using Pressure Cycling

With the goal of providing a rapid, reliable, and efficient method for selectively recovering sperm DNA from sexual assault evidence, this study applied pressure cycling technology (PCT) in the selective digestion of sperm cells from evidence mixtures, with an emphasis on the role of buffer composition on sperm DNA yields and increase in selectivity of extraction.
