GenePrint 24 System
The GenePrint 24 System is a 24-locus multiplex system designed to generate a multi-locus human DNA profile from a variety of human-derived biological sources. This five-color system allows co-amplification and fluorescent detection of the following autosomal STR loci: CSF1PO, FGA, TH01, TPOX, vWA, D3S1358, D5S818, D7S820, D8S1179, D13S317, D16S539, D18S51, D21S11, D10S1248, D22S1045, D2S441, D1S1656, D12S391, D2S1338, D19S433, Penta D and Penta E plus Amelogenin for gender determination. In addition, the male-specific DYS391 locus is included to identify null Y allele results for Amelogenin. The GenePrint 24 System is compatible with 2.5 to 5ng of extracted DNA samples and requires fewer PCR cycles in lower reaction volumes than previous STR systems. This is particularly important when optimal heterozygote balance is desired. The GenePrint 24 System is compatible with the Applied Biosystems 3130, 3130xl, 3500 and 3500xL Genetic Analyzers. Panels and bins text files are required for automatic assignment of genotypes using the GeneMapper and GeneMarker software and are available for download.
