Note: Starting May 2016, the PowerPlex 21 System will contain WEN ILS 500 as the Internal Lane Standard, replacing CC5 ILS 500. Please visit www.promega.com/products/genetic-identity/str-amplification/wen-matrix-standards-faq/ for additional details. The PowerPlex 21 System is a multiplex STR system for human identification applications including forensic analysis, relationship testing and research use. The system allows co-amplification and fluorescent detection of 21 loci (20 STR loci and Amelogenin), including D1S1656, D2S1338, D3S1358, D5S818, D6S1043, D7S820, D8S1179, D12S391, D13S317, D16S539, D18S51, D19S433, D21S11, Amelogenin, CSF1PO, FGA, Penta D, Penta E, TH01, TPOX and vWA. The PowerPlex 21 System is compatible with the ABI PRISM 3100 and 3100-Avant Genetic Analyzers and Applied Biosystems 3130, 3130xl, 3500 and 3500xL Genetic Analyzers. Panels and bins text files are required for automatic assignment of genotypes using the GeneMapper ID and ID-X software and are available for download.|
Enjoy Maximum Discrimination: 21 markers for difficult cases and complete data overlap with most existing multiplexes.
Save Labor and Time: No need to wash FTA(R), card punches. Simpler protocols are available for swabs and nonFTA card punches as well.
Experience Higher Success Rates: Higher inhibitor tolerance benefits challenging casework samples and results in less locus drop-out and reaction failure.
Shorten PCR Time: 90-minute PCR increases laboratory productivity and decreases average turnaround time for your cases.
