Application Note: DNA Extraction from Forensics Crime Stains using the sbeadex® Forensic Kit from LGC Genomics
8 May 2013

This application note presents a study to evaluate the suitability of the sbeadex® forensic kit for use in extracting DNA from forensic crime stains. The first stage of the evaluation was to test the sensitivity of the sbeadex® forensic kit at recovering DNA from blood and saliva dilution series’ processed on a liquid handling robotic workstation. It is demonstrated that the sbeadex® forensic kit is suitable for use on forensic crime stain samples where there is only a low level of DNA deposited.
