The AmpFLSTR® SGM Plus® PCR Amplification Kit amplifies 10 STR loci and the gender marker Amelogenin yielding a highly informative kit for human identification, with a 1 in 5 X 1012 average probability of identity.
Key Features of the AmpFLSTR® SGM Plus® PCR Amplification Kit:
• Ten tetranucleotide STR loci and Amelogenin are co-amplified in a single PCR tube for ease of use and increased throughput
• Amplicon allele size ranges less than 360 base pairs ensure robust PCR amplification for all loci
• Conveys certain rights to perform research and forensic testing services when used with an authorized thermal cycler
• Conveys the PCR service rights for paternity testing
Six of the STR loci (D21, FGA, TH01, vWA, D8, D18) were developed and popularized by the Forensic Science Service (FSS) in the Second Generation Multiplex (SGM) system. To create the AmpFLSTR® SGM Plus® kit, a PCR multiplex was developed and optimized to included the six core SGM loci and Amelogenin, plus four additional STR loci (D3, D19, D16, D2). The AmpFLSTR® SGM Plus® kit significantly enhances the information obtained from a single PCR.
The AmpFLSTR® SGM Plus® kit has been subjected to rigorous quality-control testing to ensure reliable performance. Experiments have been performed based upon the TWGDAM recommended guidelines (Technical Working Group on DNA Analysis Methods. 1995. Guidelines for a Quality Assurance Program for DNA Analysis. Crime Lab Digest 22:21 to 43).
