Microreader™ 21 (Direct) ID System
Microreader™ 21 (Direct) ID System System (MR21) is a 5-dye multiplex assay for short tandem repeats (STRs) that enables multiplex amplification of the 13 STR loci recommended for inclusion by the CODIS Core Loci Working Group, as well as 7 additional autosomal STRs (Penta D, Penta E, D2S441, D6S1043, D12S391, D12S1338, D19S433) and one gender markers (Amelogenin).
Fast and efficient
MR21 enables the direct amplification of blood /saliva spot samples on filter paper and FTA™ paper without the need for extraction or purification. In addition, efficient protocols minimize amplification time compared to previous-generation kits.
Wide range of applications
Stable and sensitive
Hundreds of thousands of data indicate that the MR21 has a 100% accuracy. Provides high sensitivity to consistently generate full STR profiles with 0.1ng of DNA input.
MR21 employs a direct amplification workflow from these common sample types used in paternity testing: blood, plaque, speckles, saliva, hair, nails, cartilage, amniotic fluid and other tissues from human.
