Accurate and sensitive DNA quantification plays a key role in ensuring successful STR results, and because many samples are precious, getting it right the first time is crucial. The more information you have about the sample, the better your chance for successful STR analysis.
- Trust your zero quantification results—zero means zero
- Obtain reliable quantification results with more consistent auto/Y ratios
- Maximize your success in STR assays with straightforward DNA quality assessment
- Shorten time to results with a faster cycling time of approximately 1 hour
The PowerQuant® System is a 5-color, 4-target, probe-based qPCR assay that simultaneously quantifies the total amount of amplifiable autosomal and Y-chromosomal DNA in a single assay using the same DNA standards.
The PowerQuant® System consistently quantifies as little as 6pg of autosomal or Y-chromosomal DNA and detects <1pg/µl of DNA. If you can’t detect DNA with PowerQuant® System, you won’t detect it with your STR system. Zero means zero. No need to waste valuable time or STR reagents. Trust your precious DNA samples to the PowerQuant® System, and be confident in your DNA quantitation results. Zero means zero. A DNA sample that had no Cq value for the autosomal, Y and degradation targets was amplified using the PowerPlex® ESI 17 System. Even when the maximum volume of DNA sample (17.5µl) was added to the STR amplification, no STR profile was generated.
The PowerQuant® System can detect DNA at concentrations below which an informative profile can be obtained, even when the maximum sample volume is used in an STR amplification reaction.
