The AmpFℓSTR Identifiler Direct PCR Amplification Kit is suitable for any single source DNA sample spotted onto an FTA card, including:

  • Criminal DNA database samples
  • Paternity samples
  • Casework reference samples

This kit utilizes advances in PCR buffer formulation to amplify the 16 loci included in the Identifiler kit without the need to perform any DNA extraction or purification. All you need to do is punch a 1.2 mm disc from a standard FTA card, add PCR reagents and go straight to amplification.

The Identifiler Direct kit simplifies and improves the current workflow by:

  • eliminating extraction and purification, which reduces labor and consumable costs
  • facilitating high-throughput processing with a simple, easy-to-automate protocol that requires a less sophisticated and less expensive robotic platform
  • accelerating the time to result while maintaining high profile quality
  • reducing the number of pre-amplification processing steps, which minimizes the possibility of contamination or other procedural errors
