The Maxwell® DNA IQ™ Casework Pro 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® DNA IQ™ Casework Pro Kit uses a plastic cartridge and newly designed plunger that allow DNA elution in a final volume of no more than 50μl. 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® DNA IQ™ Casework Pro Kit is compatible with the Maxwell® 16 Instrument.
The Casework Extraction Kit improves DNA extraction efficiency from a broad panel of sample types and is used for preprocessing samples before DNA extraction with the Maxwell® DNA IQ™ Casework Pro Kit.
