Product Information

IDseek® OmniSTR™ Global Autosomal STR Profiling Kit

Intended use

Reverse Complement (RC-PCR) based MPS library prep solution for autosomal STRs relative to establishing identity of missing persons, confirm familial relations, and link persons of interest to crime scenes. Covering all relevant STR core loci from USA, EU, Germany, UK, and Interpol.


RC-PCR provides multiplex targeted amplification, barcode indexing and adaptor addition. All steps are combined simultaneously in one single closed tube reaction. 


All amplicons are designed to meet the shortest possible fragment lengths and are compatible with illumina® MiSeq™ and illumina® (Qiagen/Verogen) MiSeq™ FGx systems, with 2x 10 bp Unique Dual Index reads.


IDseek® Kits have been tested and validated for inhibition with Tannic Acid, Humic Acid, Hematin, Indigo and bacterial DNA . RC-PCR technology allows the reliable analysis of highly degraded, low quality / quantity samples frequently found in forensic casework.

Premium features
Premium features

The OmniSTR™ Kit is a single reaction, multiplex library prep kit for autosomal STR profiling, including all the US and European expanded core loci, plus SE33, D4S2408, D6S1043, D9S1122, D17S1301, D20S482, PentaD, PentaE and DYS391. All targets have been designed for short amplicons, while maintaining the most informative sites in the flanking regions.

The combination of the latest advancements in MPS library prep, combined state-of-the-art features with the possibility for automated data analysis makes this kit the ideal solution for the transition from CE to MPS.

Sensitive: 100% of markers called, down to 60 pg of DNA input
Marker balance optimized for 1 ng input DNA, with limited impact on low inputs down to 60 pg
High on-target read percentage, even with low input, minimizing sequencing costs
Robust and inhibitor tolerant, tested for Humic Acid, Tannic Acid, Indigo, Hematin and Bacterial DNA

Radboud University & NimaGen: Genetic technique reveals pathogens much more accurately

''‘For example, in the Netherlands we monitor coronavirus in hospitals and wastewater, but we can easily expand that to other pathogens’, Coolen says. ‘In addition, we already apply this technique weekly in clinical diagnostics to detect so-called non-tuberculosis mycobacteria, a growing medical problem.''   ''Especially when looking for tiny amounts of a pathogen's DNA in a sea of contamination, such as in wastewater. Jordy Coolen, a PhD student at Radboud university medical center, came up with several solutions to implement sequencing in routine care. His work also included a collaboration with the company NimaGen. With relatively simple steps and lower costs, he was able to very sensitively analyze the genome of microorganisms.''   Link to Radboud University collaboration article:
