This product overview details the many benefits of MicroGEM’s forensicGEM Universal extraction kit. forensicGEM Universal kit utilizes MicroGEM’s novel thermophilic proteinase to offer a perfect solution for forensic sample processing where speed, sample size and sample integrity are critical.

Key advantages:

  • Single-Tube DNA extraction in less than 15 minutes
  • No need for inhibitory chemicals, such SDS, mercaptoethanol and DTT
  • No transfer steps – yield is maximized and opportunities for mistakes and contamination are minimized
  • High DNA recovery – Minimal loss of nucleic acids during extraction
  • No magnetic beads – No spin-columns
  • Reduced handling protects the integrity of the sample
  • Flexibility – suitable for low-throughput to high-throughput extraction with a single protocol
  • Easily automated using standard liquid handling solutions
  • Minimal plasticware required – Reduced waste and supply chain issues
