Fast and easy RapidHIT ID System workflow


1. Insert swab into cartridge

Bring the analysis tools to the point of action, whether in the lab or in the field.


2. Insert sample cartridge

Automatically performs a cell lysis, amplification, and capillary electrophoresis.


3. DNA results in 90 minutes

RapidLINK software centralizes data and provides full control of results.

RapidHIT ID sample cartridges
  • Self-contained sample cartridges transform a multi-component protocol into a single, user-initiated task.
  • No matter which operator or what site, standardized algorithms are designed to generate reproducible STR profiles within a closed system.
  • RapidHIT ID sample cartridges provide the ability to run samples as they are received—no more batching.

From a single view, a system administrator can confirm status of all locations contributing DNA profiles to RapidLINK for forensic review, check the number of runs per day, and reorder cartridges before consumables run out. With the activation of RapidLINK applications (apps), the trained forensic scientist can transform DNA results into rapid intelligence.
