Accurate and Sensitive DNA Quantification on the First Try

The PowerQuant® System is a 5-color, 4-target probe-based qPCR assay that quantifies the total amount of amplifiable autosomal and Y-chromosomal DNA in a single assay using the same DNA standards. This system provides flexible options for 4-point to 7-point standard curve. The kit contains an internal PCR control (IPC) to test for false-negative results that may occur in the presence of PCR inhibitors.

  • Trust your zero quantification results—zero means zero
  • Obtain reliable quantification results with more consistent auto/Y ratios
  • Maximize your success in STR assays with straightforward DNA quality assessment
  • Shorten time to results with a faster cycling time of approximately 1 hour
  • New software allows sample name import, data analysis and customized visualization

The PowerQuant® System is optimized for use on the following instruments:

  1. Applied Biosystems® 7500 Real-Time PCR System (Applied Biosystems® 7500 Software, Version 2.0.6)
  2. Applied Biosystems® 7500 Real-Time PCR System for Human Identification (HID Real-Time PCR Analysis, Version 1.1 or 1.2)
  3. Applied Biosystems® QuantStudio™ 5 Real-Time PCR System (Design and Analysis Desktop Software, Versions 1.5 and 1.5.1)

Use DNA Quantification Results to Reliably Predict STR Results

The PowerQuant® System can detect DNA at concentrations below which an informative profile can be obtained, even when the maximum sample volume is used in an STR amplification reaction.

 Data in the PowerQuant® System table indicate the number of replicates in which the amplification curve crossed the amplification threshold within 39 cycles divided by the total number of replicates tested.
A DNA sample was serially diluted to low template concentrations and quantified in quadruplicate using the PowerQuant® System. Data in the PowerQuant® System table indicate the number of replicates in which the amplification curve crossed the amplification threshold within 39 cycles divided by the total number of replicates tested. Auto = autosomal target, Y = male target, D = degradation target. These samples were also amplified in quadruplicate using the PowerPlex® Fusion System by adding the maximum input volume (15μl) per 25μl amplification reaction (except a template amount of 500ng was added for the 100pg/μl dilution). Data in the PowerPlex® Fusion System table show the average number of alleles detected in the STR reaction when analyzed using an Applied Biosystems® 3130 Genetic Analyzer and a 50RFU threshold. 
Representative PowerPlex® Fusion data obtained with 500pg, 150pg, 15pg and 1.5pg of DNA template.

Representative PowerPlex® Fusion data obtained with DNA template. Casework samples often contain DNA mixtures from multiple persons. The Y-chromosomal target in the PowerQuant® System enables quantification of human male DNA in the sample, helping you evaluate mixtures of male and female DNA. The PowerQuant® System also allows you to make better decisions when faced with a partial or failed STR amplification by differentiating between PCR inhibition and DNA degradation.

Reliably Detect PCR Inhibitors

Reliable detection of inhibitors that can affect DNA quantification and downstream STR assays is a key feature of the PowerQuant® System. The internal PCR control (IPC) has roughly the same level of sensitivity to inhibitors as currently available downstream STR assays, allowing you to determine if a sample is appropriate for amplification or if additional processing is required.

IPC Cq shift predicts downstream STR inhibition.
 

IPC Cq shift predicts downstream STR inhibition

In contrast to the sample with the lower humic acid concentration, the IPC Cq shifts for the samples with higher humic acid (HA) concentration (400ng/µl) indicate the presence of an inhibitor and concomitantly show a significant reduction in STR peak heights in the PowerPlex® Fusion System electropherograms. In this example, the [Auto]/[D] ratios are not affected at these humic acid concentrations. This illustrates that the IPC is more sensitive to inhibitors than the degradation target, enabling distinction between sample inhibition and degradation.

Assess DNA Integrity of Your DNA Sample

The system amplifies a short autosomal and a long autosomal target. After amplification, the PowerQuant® Analysis Software calculates the ratio of DNA concentrations for the shorter and longer amplicons. The resulting degradation ratio helps you determine if a DNA sample is degraded, rather than inhibited, and decide which, if any, STR system is most appropriate for downstream analysis. The experiment below illustrates that the [Auto]/[D] ratio is reflective of sample integrity.

Want to Automate?

Save time and improve precision by automating your DNA quantification setup. The PowerQuant® and Plexor® HY Systems can be automated on the Biomek® 4000 (Beckman Coulter), Freedom EVO (Tecan), or MicroLab STAR (Hamilton) liquid handlers. Additionally, import the quantification data into the STR Normalization Manager Software to automate your PCR amplifications setup.
