Generates closed-tube, hands-free purified double-stranded DNA from blood, saliva, and tissue (for cigarette, please use forensicGEM Universal with your thermocyler).
Ideal for high throughput screening and STR, PCR, and qPCR.
Kit contains PDQeX forensicGEM, Histosolv, BLUE buffer, ORANGE+ buffer, enhancer, and tubes.
The PDQeX forensicGEM Universal kit offers a simple hands-off method for DNA extraction and purification of a wide variety of forensic samples including blood, saliva, and tissue.
Using MicroGEM’s PDQeX Nucleic Acid Extractor, there are only two simple steps – quick sample prep and temperature-controlled DNA extraction and purification. This closed-tube, automated approach generates purified double-stranded DNA ready for high-throughput screening and works perfectly for STR, PCR, and qPCR applications.
- Comprehensive cell lysis in 20 minutes
- Simplified, hands-off workflow with no purification steps
- Extracts DNA from samples in very small volumes and with very few cells
- Reduced handling protects the integrity of the sample
Read how the PDQeX and forensicGEM Universal, in a 2018 comparative study, generated the most successful STR typing results from decomposed tissues stored in TENT for up to six months at room temperature.
