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.
All amplicons in NimaGen’s STR multiplex kits are designed to meet the shortest possible fragment lengths and are compatible with Illumina® MiSeq™ systems, with 2 x 10 bp Unique Dual Index reads. This combination of state-of-the-art features with the possibility for automated data analysis without human intervention 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
Robust and inhibitor tolerant, tested for Humic Acid, Tannic Acid, Bacterial DNA
