Promega's PowerPlex Fusion 6C System
Promega has released the PowerPlex Fusion 6C System for forensic casework samples. The PowerPlex Fusion 6C is a six-color, 27-locus multiplex system. It combines common and informative loci to overcome typical challenges faced by laboratories, including sample inhibitors, low levels of input DNA, degradation, and mixtures, Promega said. Two rapidly-mutating Y-STR loci, DYS570 and DYS576, are included in the multiplex for improved mixture interpretation, the firm said, and the system offers rapid-cycling protocols of approximately one hour.
