Microreader™ 24Y Direct ID System

Microreader™ 24Y Direct ID System

Microreader™ 24Y Direct ID System (24Y) is a 5-dye multiplex assay for highly challenging Y-STR casework and database samples. The Kit enables multiplex amplification of the 24 Y-STR markers, in particular, the 6 rapidly-mutating (RM) Y-STRs, to improve resolution of paternal lineage differentiation as well as helps with discrimination of closely-related males.  With amplicon sizes less than 440 bp, and inclusion of 8 mini-STRs, this kit is optimized for use with the difficult types of samples including those that are degraded and contain inhibitors.

Fast and efficient

24Y 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

24Y now is available for population-genetic, evolutionary, genealogical, and any other forensic investigation requirements (including human identification recognition).

Wide applicability

24Y 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.

Database compatibility

24Y can be used alone and also combined with any autosomes STR kit, helping to enable forensic DNA labs worldwide to maximize information recovery and improve overall efficiency.
