AmpFLSTR™ NGM SElect™ PCR Amplification Kit (Applied Biosystems™)

The NGM SElect Kit is a highly robust, single amplification Short Tandem Repeat (STR) multiplex kit developed for human identification laboratories wishing to utilize the expanded European Standard Set of Loci along with the highly polymorphic SE33 locus. The NGM SElect Kit combines the latest advances in primer synthesis, buffer enhancement and thermal cycling optimization. This enables the kit to deliver high sensitivity and improved STR performance for forensic casework and database samples in one easy workflow.

Key Features of the NGM SElect Kit:

• Exceptional data quality and discrimination capabilities support international data sharing
• Enables significantly enhanced performance on inhibited and degraded samples
• Enables greater sensitivity
• Maximizes concordance with previously typed samples
• Facilitates confident interpretation, promotes an optimized workflow and streamlines the implementation process

Data Quality Worth Sharing
The NGM SElect Kit has been designed to deliver a powerful level of discrimination and data quality to support cross-border data sharing initiatives. The kit addresses the requirements stipulated by the European Network of Forensic Science Institutes (ENFSI) and European DNA Profiling Group (EDNAP), and includes the expanded European Standard Set of Loci (ESSL).

The NGM SElect kit simultaneously amplifies the same 16 loci included in the NGM kit (D3S1358, vWA, D16S539, D2S1338, D8S1179, D21S11, D18S51, D19S433, TH01, FGA, Amelogenin, D10S1248, D22S1045, D2S441, D1S1656, D12S391) with the addition of the highly polymorphic SE33 locus in the PET (red) dye channel (Figure 1).

Configured for Success
Utilizing our expertise in 5-dye and mobility modifier technology, 17 loci are accommodated in a single amplification while maintaining optimum spacing (Figure 2). This permits unambiguous allele designation. All amplicons fall below 450 base pairs (bp) to maximize performance across a wide range of forensic samples. The majority of loci are concentrated below 200 bp, enabling recovery of a greater number of alleles from challenging degraded samples.

Powerful Discrimination
The combination of loci in the NGM SElect kit generates the highest power of discrimination of any AmpFLSTR kit (Table 1). This helps minimize adventitious matches when comparing large data sets (e.g. for cross border data exchange). The NGM SElect kit also offers utility for other applications requiring higher levels of discrimination, including:
• Complex kinship analysis
• Disaster victim identification
• Missing person investigations

Permits Significantly Enhanced Performance on Inhibited and Degraded Samples
Leveraging the recent advances in PCR amplification technology pioneered with the NGM kit, the NGM SElect kit enables recovery of data from severely inhibited and degraded samples. For example, the NGM SElect kit is able to extract full profiles even from samples containing high concentrations of PCR inhibitors such as humic acid (Figure 3).

Performs with Greater Sensitivity
The NGM SElect Kit benefits from the same sensitivity enhancements as the NGM Kit, resulting in superior allele recovery at lower input levels (Figure 4). This can also enhance detection of the minor contributor in a mixed sample. The standard 29 cycle, 1 ng DNA input protocol enables maximum profile balance, and a validated 30 cycle protocol is also available. The higher cycle number leads to a corresponding increase in signal, increasing the possibility of allele detection from lower input DNA amounts. The use of 30 cycles also results in offscale data at an input of 1 ng (Figure 4); therefore, laboratories wishing to adopt this protocol should determine the optimum input DNA appropriate to their workflow through internal validation studies.

Maximizes Concordance
The NGM SElect Kit maintains identical primer sequences for the core STR loci common to the SGM Plus, Identifiler and SEfiler Plus 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 with previous kits to reduce training and implementation requirements

The primers for the SE33 locus were redesigned from those used in the SEfiler Plus kit to relocate the amplicon within the multiplex. However, the new primer sequences have been optimized and tested thoroughly to maintain concordance with the SEfiler Plus kit as much as possible.

Facilitates Confident Data Interpretation
The NGM SElect kit benefits from improvements in primer synthesis techniques resulting in significantly cleaner baselines than previous AmpFLSTR kits (Figure 5). The lack of dye related artifacts, even at 30 cycles, improves the ability of the analyst to interpret data, particularly for low level samples. Confident data interpretation is further enhanced by other improvements in profile quality, including:
• Enhanced sensitivity and robustness
• Maximized heterozygote and intracolor balance
• Optimum dye set utilization

These features also help facilitate streamlined processing of single source samples by expert system software such as GeneMapper ID-X.

Easy to Implement, Easy to Use
Every aspect of the NGM SElect kit has been designed with ease of implementation and use in mind. This is a single kit solution that delivers high quality results for both database and casework samples, optimizing the forensic DNA workflow while reducing operating costs.

The kit workflow is very similar to other AmpFLSTR kits, enabling forensic laboratories to streamline validation and implementation. However, the enzyme is now contained within the master mix, simplifying reaction set-up. Cycling times have been shortened by approximately one hour, allowing laboratories to achieve higher quality results more quickly. For compatibility with both manual and automated systems, two package sizes are available, the standard 200 reaction kit and a larger 1000 reaction kit. The larger package includes larger bottles to facilitate use on liquid handling platforms.

Note: For Forensic or Paternity Use Only.

AmpFLSTR™ Yfiler™ PCR Amplification Kit (Applied Biosystems™)

The AmpFLSTR Yfiler PCR Amplification Kit permits the analysis of complex male:female DNA mixtures that often yield ambiguous or inconclusive results with autosomal STRs.

Key Features of the AmpFLSTR Yfiler PCR Amplification Kit:

• Analyze trace quantities of male DNA that may be present in a large background of female DNA
• Combine the inherent male specificity of Y-STRs with the robust performance of an AmpFLSTR kit
• Amplify 17 Y-STR loci in a single PCR reaction which yields the highest discriminatory capacity of any commercially available Y-STR kit
• Search the user-friendly on-line haplotype database to easily determine the frequency of any Yfiler kit haplotype
• Use this powerful tool for the analysis of cases that contain a suspect(s)

Combines the Inherent Male Specificity of Y-STRs with the Robust Performance of an AmpFLSTR Kit
Mixtures of body fluids and/or tissues from a male and female are frequently encountered with sexual assault casework and other violent crimes. These mixed samples often contain trace quantities of male DNA present in a large background of female DNA. Typical samples can include vaginal swabs containing a small number of sperm cells, body swabs from female victims of oral assaults, and fingernail scrapings/clippings from female victims of violent assaults. Standard autosomal STR analysis may be unable to detect the minor male contributor in these types of samples, while the Yfiler kit can routinely detect a minor male contributor present at less than 1:1000.

Provides the Highest Discriminatory Capacity of Any Commercially Available Y-STR Kit
The AmpFLSTR Yfiler PCR Amplification Kit amplifies 17 Y-STR loci in a single PCR reaction using 5-dye chemistry to provide the highest discriminatory capacity of any commercially available Y-STR kit. The Yfiler kit can distinguish more than 98% of all unrelated males from one another, and therefore offers the discriminatory power necessary to conduct meaningful forensic DNA analysis.

A Powerful Tool for Suspect Casework
The Yfiler kit is a powerful tool for the analysis of cases that contain a suspect(s). A significant proportion of DNA cases contain a suspect who has been identified by conventional law enforcement techniques. For these cases, the Yfiler kit is a powerful tool that can be used to include or exclude a suspect(s) associated with an investigation.
