The Applied Biosystems™ Precision ID Ancestry Panel and Library Kit Bundle is packaged for easy ordering and preparation of amplicon libraries using the Precision ID Ancestry Panel (Cat. No. A25642) and a Precision ID Library Kit (Cat. No. A26435) for sequencing on Ion Torrent sequencing systems. The Precision ID Ancestry Panel of multiplexed SNPs provides DNA-based investigative leads for forensic casework samples. Specifically, it helps determine the continental bio-geographic ancestry of a sample owner from pristine or degraded samples.

Simple protocol
• 96 well plate–based workflow enables easy sample management
• No library amplification with qPCR quantification

Optimized digestion reagent
• Cleaner digest allows for more efficient downstream sequencing

Scalable multiplex PCR reactions
The Precision ID Ancestry Panel is built on Ion AmpliSeq™ chemistry, which enables scalable multiplex PCR reactions for all 165 markers in the panel using just 1 ng of starting DNA, with superior coverage uniformity and specificity. In addition, the primers contain proprietary modifications that enable removal of primer sequences during library preparation, for efficient target assessment during sequencing. Multiple primer pools can be used to create overlapping amplicons that enable complete coverage of large targets. Learn more about other Precision ID panels >

Barcoded library preparation
The included Precision ID Library Kit includes reagents for generating amplicons with Ion AmpliSeq primers and preparing libraries from the resulting amplicons. The kit enables the preparation of barcoded libraries using the Ion Xpress™ Barcode Adapters 1-96 Kit, and the IonCode™ Barcode Adapters 1-384 Kit. Barcoded libraries can be combined and loaded onto a single Ion chip to minimize sequencing run time and cost and allow for accurate sample-to-sample comparisons.

Easy and flexible protocol
The resulting DNA libraries are ready for downstream template preparation for clonal amplification on Ion Sphere™ particles using the automated Ion OneTouch™ 2 System. The intuitive Torrent Suite Software and HID SNP Genotyper plug-in enable you to go from extracted DNA to ancestry-informative genotypes in less than two days*.
