GE Healthcare Launches DNAscan™ 6C Rapid DNA Analysis™ System
GE Healthcare’s Life Sciences business and NetBio have announced the addition of the DNAscan 6C Rapid DNA Analysis System to their range of Rapid DNA analysis solutions. The 6-color system increases STR chemistry options with its High DNA Content Flexplex BioChipSet Cassette. The 6-dye Flexplex chemistry generates STR profiles containing 27 loci, and as a result is compatible with major DNA databases globally.
The new Flexplex assay co-amplifies 23 autosomal STR loci, three Y-STR loci, and amelogenin for advanced sample discrimination. Flexplex chemistry offers global compatibility by spanning the Extended European Standard Set, the expanded US CODIS core loci, and other commonly used region-specific loci.
Fully automated, the DNAscan 6C Rapid DNA Analysis System performs sample-in to results-out processing with integrated Expert System software, providing high-quality STR profiles for up to 5 samples in less than 90 minutes.
The High DNA Content Flexplex BioChipSet Cassette offers the following features:
• Expanded STR locus set
• Global compatibility
• All-in-one consumable
• Room temperature storage
• Closed system for contamination control
• RFID tags for sample tracking
