Trusted, integrated systems for paternity and kinship analysis
As the worldwide leader in DNA typing solutions, Thermo Fisher Scientific delivers the most comprehensively validated products, expertise and application support available to paternity testing laboratories. Precise results, consistent performance and proven success, sample after sample, are what you expect from us.
Applied Biosystems direct PCR amplification kits combine a high power of discrimination with superior performance and fast time to results, meaning you can get accurate results from your paternity and kinship samples in less than two hours.
The first step is critical
An easy-to-use device for collection, preservation and long-term storage of nucleic acids. No extraction step required. Nucleic acids are immobilised and preserved for long-term storage at room temperature.
Speed up your workflow, expand your throughput
The Prep-n-Go Buffer and Prep-n-Go Buffer for Buccal Swabs enable high quality direct PCR amplification of non-FTA reference and single source samples without the need for heat incubation, extraction or purification. Increase your STR profile quality with fewer intermediate steps.
Increased efficiency and discriminatory power
Amplification kits for paternity testing
Direct STR amplification kits offer improved efficiency by eliminating the need for DNA extraction and quantification.
VeriFiler Express PCR Amplification Kit
For paternity customers who demand high confidence in relationship testing conclusions, the new 6-dye VeriFiler Express PCR Amplification Kit—with 25 STR markers including two highly discriminating Penta markers—enables superior genotyping results backed by superior service and support.
GlobalFiler Express PCR Amplification Kit
As part of the only fully integrated and validated forensic workflow, this 6-dye, 24-locus technology is designed to deliver superior lab performance—all facilitated by high quality manufacturing at our ISO18385 certified facility, along with comprehensive training, service, and support.
Same STR workflow, same trusted CE technology
Now with an innovative all-in-one cartridge that helps reduce run setup time from hours to minutes
The Applied Biosystems SeqStudio Genetic Analyzer for HID is a 4-capillary, easy-to-use, and convenient benchtop system that delivers gold-standard STR fragment analysis with just one click. The SeqStudio instrument uses an innovative all-in-one cartridge. Load up your samples and cathode buffer, click in the cartridge, and go. The cartridge is stable for up to six months on the instrument and can process 250 injections (1000 samples). The SeqStudio Genetic Analyzer for HID is optimized for performance with Applied Biosystems STR kits and incorporates a resolution algorithm and a marker-to-marker pull-up reduction that is optimized for the markers in each kit.
Get the same answers you trust with the outstanding data quality, service, and support you’ve come to expect from Applied Biosystems instruments.
By combining Applied Biosystems 3500 Data Collection Software v4.0 or SeqStudio Data Collection Software v 1.2 with Applied Biosystems STR kits, GeneMapper ID-X software helps significantly enhance productivity and confidence, as well as IT support and compliance, in your paternity laboratory’s data interpretation workflow. These software solutions offer the following benefits:
Improved data interpretation—reduced pull-up edits with Applied Biosystems STR kits, Improved first-pass success rate for labs processing single source samples with off-scale data recovery
Enhanced user experience—flexible plate loading, streamlined workflow, support languages, 6-dye installation standard
IT support and compliance—Windows 10 support, internationalization
Complete analysis solution for kinship and paternity testing
* The GlobalFiler Express kit and the VeriFiler Express kit are now approved by the FBI’s National DNA Index System (NDIS) Board for use by laboratories generating offender DNA profiles for inclusion in the U.S. National NDIS CODIS database.
** Typical workflow for up to 48 single-source samples using Applied Biosystems thermal cyclers, genetic analyzers, and expert system analysis software.
