Screening for sperm in sexual assault samples is a laborious process with limited sensitivity compared to male DNA detection by amplification. Direct amplification of casework samples reduces the potential for DNA loss during purification, a special concern with low-template samples. In this webinar, Promega presents an overview of the Casework Direct Kit, and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office describes how they plan to use the kit in their sexual assault evidence processing.
