Note: Starting May 2016, the PowerPlex Y23 System will contain WEN ILS 500 Y23 as the Internal Lane Standard, replacing CC5 ILS 500 Y23. Please visit www.promega.com/products/genetic-identity/str-amplification/wen-matrix-standards-faq/ for additional details. PowerPlex Y23 System is a 23-loci, 5-color Y-STR multiplex designed for genotyping forensic casework samples, database samples and paternity samples. The PowerPlex Y23 System works well with extracted DNA samples, including low amounts of template and male/female DNA mixtures. The PowerPlex Y23 System also is compatible with direct amplification, enabling streamlined Y-STR databasing efforts. Amplification can be successfully performed with sample types such as FTA card punches as well as pretreated swabs, Bode Buccal DNA Collector punches or S&S 903 punches. Faster cycling conditions cut amplification time almost in half. Moreover, reduced sample-processing time and faster cycling conditions provide a significant time savings in every run. The PowerPlex Y23 System is tolerant of many known amplification inhibitors. The robust performance of the kit results in more interpretable data from inhibitor-laden samples. The PowerPlex Y23 System was given NDIS approval in January 2013.|
More Meaningful STR Analysis: Higher power of discrimination from 23 loci results in fewer false-positive matches.More Usable Profile from Samples with Excess Female DNA: High sensitivity in the presence of female DNA (less than0.1ng male DNA, 1:6,000 ratio).Streamlined Databasing Workflows: Direct-amplification compatible.Significant Reduction in Amplification Time: Faster cycling conditions cut amplification time roughly in half.Full Profiles from Challenging Casework Samples: High tolerance for inhibitors including tannic acid, hematin and humic acid.Simplified Workflows and Inventory: One kit for both casework and databasing.
