The PowerPlex® 21, 18D and 16 HS STR Systems offer highly informative loci and unparalleled power of discrimination to identify and characterize mixed human cell or tissue samples, and to confirm cell identity.
PowerPlex® 21 System
Amplify 21 loci for the highest level of discrimination. Includes rapid PCR technology for reduced amplification time and a convenient master mix formulation with hot-start Taq polymerase.
PowerPlex® 18D System
Direct amplification from FTA® cards and four-color fluorescent detection of 18 loci. The reduced amplification time allows easier and faster genotyping results.
PowerPlex® 16 HS System
Amplify and detect 16 loci using a convenient master mix that includes hot-startTaq DNA polymerase.
