IntegenX this week launched its RapidHit 200 Human DNA Identification System in Europe.

The RapidHit 200 is a fully automated and closed sample-to-profile DNA analysis system that integrates cell lysis, DNA extraction, PCR amplification, capillary electrophoresis-based separation, and laser-induced fluorescence detection.

The system can produce DNA profiles from buccal swabs or other human samples in less than 90 minutes, and will enable DNA analysis at the point of collection, such as an arrest or detention, according to the company.
