MicroGEM's forensicGEM Universal kit provides effortless DNA extraction for forensic tissue forensicGEM Universal Kits are the ideal solution for forensic extractions involving saliva, blood, or tissue samplessamples including:

    • animal (scrappings, fat, muscle)
    • tape lifts
  • hair


Depending on your laboratory equipment and end-use application, MicroGEM offers two options:

  • 1. Your Lab Equipment

    MicroGEM's forensicGEM Universal Kit provides users with a single tube solution for extracting DNA from a variety of forensically-relevant human samples.

    To use your lab’s existing thermocycler or liquid handler, choose the forensicGEM Universal Kit, optimized to extract DNA from tissue. Hands-free, single-tube, temperature-controlled processing makes it possible to extract DNA in very small volumes and protects the integrity of the sample.

    This kit produces single-stranded DNA suitable for STR, PCR, qPCR, and whole genome amplification.

  • 2. MicroGEM's PDQeX Nucleic Acid Extractor

    The PDQeX Nucleic Acid Extractor simplifies molecular biology workflows.

    MicroGEM’s automated technology provides hands-free, single-tube, temperature-controlled DNA extractions from tissue, with added capabilities to generate purified, double-stranded DNA. The purification is achieved within the innovative PDQeX cartridge. When the extraction is completed, DNA is automatically forced through the purification matrix with no loss of DNA. This method reduces contamination and significantly speeds up the entire extraction process to under 15 minutes.

    This kit produces double-stranded DNA suitable for STR, PCR, and qPCR, and is ideal for high throughput screening.
