Next-generation sequencing (NGS) workflows have gained popularity in forensic DNA laboratories for the better part of the last decade. However, hurdles in workflow integration, automation and vendor support have slowed the NGS adoption in forensics. Verogen has recently made great strides to make NGS workflows accessible and adapt them to the needs of forensic practitioners. In concert with Verogen, QIAGEN has an integrated workflow to support the Sample to Insight needs of modern human identification (HID) laboratories.

QIAGEN–Verogen partnership offers a suite of tools that can answer any open question that typically remains unanswered in a forensic DNA setting. Join this webinar as Dr. LaRue will discuss:

  • The underlying chemistry associated with combined QIAGEN–Verogen NGS workflows
  • How the consolidated workflows will help deepen, improve and accelerate your forensic casework

Don’t miss this webinar and learn how the combined QIAGEN–Verogen offering can step up your forensic insights.
