Automated DNA Extraction of Forensic Samples with the DNA IQTM System on the epMotion® 5075 LH
30 September 2015

Forensic DNA laboratories are experiencing rapidly growing demand to process large numbers of evidence samples. In an effort to meet the rising needs for DNA analysis, liquid handling workstations are utilized for the automation of the liquid handling tasks. This study demonstrates that the epMotion 5075 LH used in combination with the DNA IQ System (Promega Corporation) is versatile enough to accommodate the whole spectra of samples encountered by a crime laboratory. The performance of the epMotion LH 5075/DNA IQ System with regard to DNA yields and potential cross-contamination for different sample types was evaluated.
