GE Healthcare DNAscan 6C Rapid DNA Analysis System

GE Healthcare and NetBio have introduced the fully automated DNAscan 6C Rapid DNA Analysis System, which provides high-quality STR profiles for up to five samples in less than 90 minutes. The six-color system increases STR chemistry options with its high DNA content FlexPlex BioChipSet cassette. The six-dye FlexPlex chemistry generates STR profiles containing 27 loci — 23 autosomal STR loci, three Y-STR loci, and amelogenin — and as a result is compatible with major DNA databases globally. Flexplex chemistry spans the Extended European Standard Set, the expanded US CODIS core loci, and other commonly used region-specific loci. Fully automated, the DNAscan 6C Rapid DNA Analysis System performs.
