Enhancing Forensic Analysis of Trace DNA Using the MinElute® PCR Purification Kit
5 Dec 2013
The QIAGEN® MinElute PCR Purification Kit improves forensic casework analysis of trace DNA samples, which often result in poor-quality profiles. This post-PCR process concentrates DNA and removes unwanted PCR components, thus increasing amplicon uptake during electrokinetic injection. This application note demonstrates that post-PCR purification using the MinElute PCR Purification Kit reduces background, improves allele detection, boosts analysis sensitivity, and minimizes artifacts.
