The VeriFiler Express PCR Amplification Kit is a direct-amplification STR kit that combines a high power of discrimination with superior performance and fast time to results. The VeriFiler Express kit enables multiplex amplification of the 22 STR loci included in the GlobalFiler Express kit, as well the highly discriminating Penta D and Penta E loci and two gender markers (Amelogenin, Yindel) for maximum concordance with existing kits and high confidence in paternity and relationship testing conclusions.
Powered by breakthrough 6-dye technology, the VeriFiler Express PCR Amplification Kit was designed for optimal performance and excellent discrimination power to help obtain accurate results for single-source samples in less time.
Key features of the VeriFiler Express PCR Amplification Kit: • Enables direct amplification from these common sample types used in paternity testing without the need for extraction or purification: --Buccal samples on treated and untreated paper --Buccal samples on cotton swab --Blood samples on treated and untreated paper • Helps accelerate time-to-result with minimal reduction in data quality • Facilitates high throughput and automated processing through increased workflow efficiency • Improves genotyping accuracy through superior primer design • Enhances genotyping accuracy through expanded allelic ladder and virtual bins
High first-pass success rates improve productivity The VeriFiler Express PCR 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, off-ladder allele calls, and off-scale data • Well-balanced profile within each dye color for maximized Intracolor Balance (ICB) values
Maximizes concordance The VeriFiler Express PCR Amplification primers have been optimized and tested thoroughly to maintain concordance with the GlobalFiler Express, NGM Select, Identifiler, and VeriFiler Direct kits thereby: • Maximizing concordance with existing data sets for simplified historical comparisons • Minimizing requirements for repeat analyses necessary to resolve non-concordant events • Maintaining sufficient similarity of configuration for ease of training and implementation
Complete validated solution Our products provide a complete solution for your human identification needs and include DNA quantification kits, a range of STR kits, instrumentation, software, and consumables. The VeriFiler Express PCR Amplification Kit is part of a comprehensively validated system for STR-based human identification. The PCR reaction components, primer sequences, and amplification protocols have been developed, optimized, and validated together with Applied Biosystems instrumentation and software to provide specific, robust amplification. All reagents are developed in accordance with guidelines from leading worldwide forensic organizations such as the Scientific Working Group on DNA Analysis Methods (SWGDAM).
Validation experiments for the VeriFiler Express PCR Amplification Kit were performed by our scientists according to the Quality Assurance Standards for DNA Databasing Laboratories and the SWGDAM Validation Guidelines for DNA Analysis Methods. However, each laboratory using the VeriFiler Express PCR Amplification Kit should perform its own internal validation studies.
Commitment to quality The VeriFiler Express PCR Amplification Kit is subjected to rigorous quality control testing to offer consistent performance. We develop and manufacture our products in accordance with ISO 9001 and ISO 18385 quality system requirements. Additionally, a Certificate of Analysis that confirms that the specific combination of components within each lot meets quality assurance testing specifications is available online.
Experience matters We are the only company in the world that designs and validates its reagents, instruments, and data analysis software together as an integrated system for DNA testing. Technical service scientists and field application specialists are available to answer your technical questions, review data, and make recommendations on how to perform assays and troubleshoot results. All of these resources help ensure success when using Applied Biosystems human identification solutions in your laboratory.
