InnoGenomics DNA Testing Kits

InnoGenomics Technologies has launched two new DNA testing kits, the InnoTyper 21 and InnoQuant HY. The new tests enable forensic DNA laboratories to successfully analyze challenging biological samples that frequently fail with traditional systems. Both kits use the company's technology to overcome multiplexing challenges with retrotransposable elements to achieve PCR efficiency, sensitivity, reproducibility, and robustness, the company said.  The InnoTyper 21 is a test with a DNA typing system that can obtain results from extremely challenging and degraded samples. The InnoQuant HY is a sensitive and informative quantitative assay for comprehensive samples assessment and increased downstream DNA profile recovery.
