The AmpFLSTR Huaxia PCR Direct Amplification Kit employs a validated 'direct' amplification chemistry designed specifically for the China forensic community to use with DNA database samples and other single source DNA samples. The Huaxia PCR Direct Amplification kit amplifies the discriminating loci set in the Applied Biosystems Sinofiler Kit, while enabling high quality direct PCR amplification of reference samples without the need for incubation, extraction, or purification.
The Huaxia PCR Direct Amplification kit:
• Facilitates high throughput and automated processing
• Accelerates time-to-result while maintaining high profile quality
• Eliminates extraction/purification costs and reduces labor and consumable costs
• Reduces the number of pre-amplification processing steps, minimizing the possibility of contamination or other procedural errors
• Uses the same loci and primer sequences as the Sinofiler kit, which:
-- Offers high discrimination for Chinese populations
--Maximizes concordance and facilitates comparison with existing data/database
--Streamlines validation and implementation
Direct Amplification While Minimizing PCR Inhibition
By overcoming PCR inhibition and enhancing amplification of all the Sinofiler loci, the Huaxia PCR Direct Amplification kit delivers direct amplification capability to the Sinofiler primer set, allowing database laboratories to eliminate work steps and reduce time and labor required to generate STR profiles. In addition, the Huaxia kit allows for amplification in less time than is currently required.
Higher First-pass Success Rates Improve Productivity
The Huaxia PCR Direct Amplification kit enables high-quality direct PCR amplification of reference samples with an improved first-pass success rate. You can expect:
• Well-resolved peaks above the background 'noise' level
• Minimal occurrence of allelic drop-out or off-scale data
• Clean baselines with fewer artifacts
• Well-balanced profile within each dye color for maximized Intracolor Balance (ICB) values
With the Huaxia kit, there is no need for sample extraction, purification, or quantification, enabling a substantial reduction in labor and consumable costs compared to the standard PCR amplification workflow.
Simply 'Punch and Go'
The kit includes primer mix, reaction mix, positive control DNA, and allelic ladder. The enzyme is contained within the reaction mix, so the Huaxia kit contains fewer tubes and fewer boxes than the Sinofiler kit. Simply punch a 1.2 mm disc into each well of a 96-well plate, add the master mix, and go to thermocycling. No washing, no extracting, and no quantifying. It's as simple as punch and go.
