The AmpFLSTR® Yfiler® Direct Kit enables forensic laboratories to perform high-quality Y-STR analysis of single-source reference samples using direct PCR amplification. This kit amplifies the same 17 Y-STR loci as the AmpFLSTR® Yfiler® Kit and is designed to generate accurate results with faster thermocycling conditions than the Yfiler® Kit. Blood or buccal samples on treated paper (FTA® Card or NUCLEIC-CARD™ System
) can be punched into PCR plates or tubes and taken directly to PCR amplification, without reduction in data quality. Samples collected with the Buccal DNA Collector™
and other untreated substrates can be processed without additional workflow steps using the Applied Biosystems® Prep-n-Go™ Buffer
• Supports direct PCR amplification (no DNA extraction or quantification required) of single source reference samples on treated and untreated paper
• Provides maximum concordance with the Yfiler® kit
• Designed to deliver faster cycling times through the introduction of a new fast-capable enzyme (~2.5 hours)
In addition, the Yfiler® Direct kit uses the same dye set, allelic ladder, and primer sequences as the standard Yfiler® kit, which:
• Facilitates comparison with casework data
• Streamlines validation and implementationComplete Validated Solution
Life Technologies offers a complete solution to meet the needs of the human identification community. Our system includes DNA extraction and quantification kits, a range of AmpFLSTR® STR Kits, instrumentation, software, and consumables.
The AmpFLSTR® Yfiler® Direct 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.
The Yfiler® Direct kit is subjected to rigorous quality control testing to ensure consistent performance. Life Technologies develops and manufactures its products in accordance with ISO 9001 quality system requirements. Additionally, a Certificate of Analysis is available upon request that confirms that the specific combination of components within each lot meets quality assurance testing specifications.Experience Matters
