  • Automated Benchtop DNA Extraction from Casework Samples

    The Maxwell® FSC DNA IQ™ Casework Kit is designed for optimal DNA extraction from forensic casework samples. These samples may include blood stains, semen stains, hairs, cigarette butts, tissue samples and trace or "touch" DNA samples regularly encountered in forensic DNA analysis. The kit contains the same trusted reagents as the DNA IQ™ System in a convenient, prefilled cartridge format and is optimized to provide a final DNA extract in a pure, concentrated format.

    The Maxwell® FSC DNA IQ™ Casework Kit uses a plastic cartridge and newly designed plunger that allow DNA elution in a final volume of no more than 50ul. DNA IQ™ Lysis Buffer, Resin and Wash Buffer are included in the prefilled cartridge, and DNA IQ™ Elution Buffer is included in the kit to ensure proper storage of the DNA. The Maxwell® FSC DNA IQ™ Casework Kit is compatible with the Maxwell® FSC Instrument, which includes a surface tablet and easy, intuitive interface.

    The Casework Extraction Kit (Cat.# DC6745) improves DNA extraction efficiency from a broad panel of sample types and is used for preprocessing samples before DNA extraction with the Maxwell® FSC DNA IQ™ Casework Kit. New CW Spin Baskets and CW Microfuge Tubes, 1.5ml, are ethylene-oxide-treated and enable preprocessing of solid samples without the need to transfer swabs, simplifying the process and reducing the chance of cross-contamination.

    Maxwell® Cartridge Seal Change

    The seal length on Maxwell® Cartridges has changed to create a pull-tab feature. The manufacturing procedures and quality-control testing of products have not changed.
