The forensicGEM™ range of DNA extraction kits offer solutions for rapid DNA extraction for reference and crime scene samples. The kits can be used in plates, strips or tubes.
The ZyGEM reagents, including the forensicGEM™ range, rely on the use of a highly active, thermostable protease, that allows the extraction of DNA in buffers that are highly compatible with downstream PCR. This allows for more lysate to be carried into the downstream PCR, offering greater sensitivity in detecting low abundance DNA species in mixed samples.

The kits are scaleable, automatable and lossless, and yield DNA ideally suitable for use in forensic profiling protocols and have been validated using the market leading reagents, up to 18-plex assays
