Streamline your paternity and kinship testing workflow
Autosomal STRs are in worldwide use for kinship and forensic analysis, and the extended CODIS set has brought powerful upgrades to the battery of core markers available. However, there are still scenarios where supplementary STRs could enhance the data necessary for interpreting complex kinship patterns. That’s why QIAGEN offers a broad portfolio of preanalytical and analytical products for all types of kinship analyses.

Start getting clear, reliable Y-STR results
Y-STR haplotype analysis is well established in resolving paternity disputes of male offspring and other types of paternal kinship testing, including historical cases. The Investigator Argus Y-28 QS Kit is designed for optimal performance and unparalleled discrimination. In particular, the inclusion of six rapidly mutating Y-STRs supports the resolution of paternal lineages and discriminates between closely related males. Obtain trusted results for challenging samples in less time.
