"I use the PowerPlex ESI kits for Identity testing with my CE instruments. The kit is incredibly robust and works well all the time. I would highly recommend it to anyone using CE. Promega is a great company and is quick to answer questions. I will always work with them."
They are based on five-color technology and allow co-amplification and detection of D3S1358, D8S1179, D18S51, D21S11, FGA, TH01, vWA, D2S441, D10S1248, D22S1045, D1S1656, D12S391, D2S1338, D16S539, D19S433, SE33 and Amelogenin.
These kits are available in multiple formats, including the option to detect SE33, to accommodate various requirements or preferences. Additionally, the kits have increased tolerance to common inhibitors and increased sensitivity to obtain full profiles from low-level DNA and are robust enough to genotype degraded DNA samples through the use of mini-STR loci. Using rapid cycling technology, amplification can be done in less than 50 minutes.
The systems are compatible with the Applied Biosystems® 3130, 3130xl and 3500 Genetic Analyzers and ABI PRISM® 3100, 3100-Avant and 310 Genetic Analyzers.
