PowerPlex Y23 System is a 23-loci, 5-color Y-STR multiplex designed for genotyping forensic casework samples, database samples and paternity samples. The PowerPlex Y23 System works well with extracted DNA samples, including low amounts of template and male/female DNA mixtures. The PowerPlex Y23 System also is compatible with direct amplification, enabling streamlined Y-STR databasing efforts. Amplification can be successfully performed with sample types such as FTA card punches as well as pretreated swabs, Bode Buccal DNA Collector punches or S&S 903 punches. Faster cycling conditions cut amplification time almost in half. Moreover, reduced sample-processing time and faster cycling conditions provide a significant time savings in every run. The PowerPlex Y23 System is tolerant of many known amplification inhibitors. The robust performance of the kit results in more interpretable data from inhibitor-laden samples. The PowerPlex Y23 System was given NDIS approval in January 2013.
