Human identification and forensics
Solutions for even your most challenging samples
Casework samples – whether from sexual assault cases, kinship testing, disaster victim ID or other scenarios – are difficult to work with. They often contain highly degraded DNA, high inhibitor contents or mixed DNA from multiple individuals. To help forensic labs overcome these challenges, we've developed dedicated products and protocols, including robust instrumentation for sample preparation and a complete analytical assay portfolio, that are optimized for compromised DNA. In addition, QIAGEN scientists and technical support specialists are ready to help you prepare for even the most sensitive and challenging applications.
We are happy with the Quantiplex Pro kit- it has performed in casework as it performed in the validation. It yields reliable quantitation values that result in consistent DNA profiles downstream.
