Join Jeff Hickey, MicroGEM’s forensic expert and product specialist, to discover the advantages of temperature-driven, enzymatic sperm lysis including qPCR and STR data comparing the enzymatic chemistry to conventional sperm lysis methods. Available on-demand, Jeff discusses Y screening of sexual assault evidence, as well as differential extraction protocols.
Join us at Booth 7 to celebrate DNA Day together. Find out why temperature-controlled nucleic acid extractions are the answer when speed, sample size, yield, and simplified workflow are important.

Join Jeff Hickey, MicroGEM’s forensic expert and product specialist, to discover the advantages of temperature-driven, enzymatic sperm lysis including qPCR and STR data comparing the enzymatic chemistry to conventional sperm lysis methods. Jeff will also discuss its use in Y screening of sexual assault evidence, as well as its use in differential extraction protocols.
Register to attend this webinar featuring Jo Stanton (University of Otago) and David Saul (CSO, MicroGEM) on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 3:00 pm EST.
Jo and David will discuss a novel DNA extraction approach using thermostable enzymes and a thermoresponsive cartridge used with the PDQeX to enable extractions without centrifugation or harsh solvents. They will share study results demonstrating the quality of sequencing-ready DNA extracted from bacteria and how this rapid approach compares to traditional chemical-based methods.
