The PowerPlex® CS7 System allows co-amplification and three-color detection of seven STR loci, including LPL, F13B, FESFPS, F13A01, Penta D, Penta C and Penta E. All seven loci are amplified simultaneously in a single tube and analyzed in a single injection. The PowerPlex® CS7 System provides all materials necessary to amplify STR regions of purified genomic DNA.
This system contains two loci, Penta D and Penta E, that overlap with the loci included in the PowerPlex® 16, 16 HS, 18D, 21 and Fusion Systems, allowing detection of sample mixup when used together. This feature allows the PowerPlex® CS7 System to be used as a confirmatory kit in paternity applications using the five unshared STR loci to supplement the genotype and increase the available information for greater discrimination.
The PowerPlex® CS7 System is compatible with the Applied Biosystems® 3130, 3130xl and 3500 Genetic Analyzers.
