Automated Differex™ System
The Power of Differential Extraction
Sexual assault samples provide valuable forensic information. However, mixture samples are among the most difficult to process, as sperm and epithelial fractions first must be separated. The automated Differex™ System provides an alternative to cumbersome manual methods by automating differential extraction. Robotic processing of mixture samples can reduce case backlogs without compromising quality. The automated Differex™ System combines Differex™ reagents with proven DNA IQ™ chemistry and specialized methods for complete and clean differential extraction.
The Power of Speed
It can take up to 5 days to process 40 differential extraction samples using the typical manual differential extraction method, and the final results may be variable, depending on the analyst's skill level. With the automated Differex™ method you can process up to 40 differential extraction samples, from incubation to final eluted DNA, in less than 5 hours. Hands-on time is less than 1 hour, reducing total processing time by up to 90%.
The Power of Automation
Automation allows your lab to be more efficient than ever before. Analysts' time per sample is dramatically reduced, while consistency of sample handling is increased. Your laboratory can focus on more labor-intensive processes and data analysis, while an automated platform takes care of repetitive tasks.
