Accelerating human identification workflows with the Investigator ESSplex Plus Kit


This webinar focuses on the performance and benefits of the new Investigator ESSplex Plus Kit. This is the first product in QIAGEN's next generation of STR PCR kits for human identity and forensic testing. The kit amplifies the 15 loci of the Eurpoean Standard Set (ESS) and Amelogenin in an unparalleled PCR speed of approximately 90 minutes without compromising the sensitivity and linearity of the reaction.
