Officially launching at ISFG 2022
The novel IDseek® range of Forensic MPS library prep kits powered by advanced, patented Reverse Complement PCR technology will revolutionize Forensic DNA analysis. Its one tube, single reaction workflow minimizes the risk of PCR contamination and offers sensitive and robust performance required for routine application in forensic casework.
Meet and learn more from Forensic experts during our Lunch, Learn & Connect Symposium:
(Marriott Marquis, Meeting room University of DC & Catholic University, Meeting Level 1, 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM)
- The future of MPS in Forensic DNA analysis. Bruce Budowle, Department of Forensic Medicine, University of Helsinki
- RC-PCR, an Effective SNP System for Analysis of Highly Degraded DNA Samples. Magdalena M. Buś, Center for Human Identification, University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth
- RC-PCR as a routine MPS tool for forensic STR-sequencing; performance of the IDseek® OmniSTR™ Global STR Kit. Kristiaan van der Gaag, Netherlands Forensic Institute
Our MPS solutions for Forensic DNA analysis
IDseek® comprises a complete range of STR, SNP and mtDNA based MPS solutions for Forensic DNA analysis, based on EasySeq™ Library Prep powered by RC-PCR technology, in combination with illumina® sequencing.
The IDseek® assay is the first MPS assay with a straightforward RC-PCR based targeted library prep workflow that can compete with capillary electrophosis (CE) based assays for routine application in Forensic casework. Post RC-PCR, samples are purified using AmpliClean™ Magnetic Bead Cleanup, providing sequence-ready libraries.
Meet the NimaGen team at booth #105!
Forensic DNA analysis is at an important stage in its development. New technology, like MPS, has accelerated demand for forensic research applications, but also brings new challenges, as laboratories become increasingly hindered in their forensic casework:
- Sample throughtput, due to increasing number of (cold) cases and sample backlogs
- Sample quantity available (input)
- Sample quality, i.e. highly degraded samples, from a variety of sample sources and matrices
- Discrimination power relative to paternity and deconvolution of mixed DNA samples
- Technical and workflow limitations of current DNA-based methods used
- Result interpretation and conclusion (science versus law)
- Validation and certification of methods used
Meet our resourceful NimaGen team to discuss your needs and challenges in Forensic DNA analysis!
