Why you need to use this kit: When your forensic samples are degraded and your STR analysis can not generate reliable signal peaks by CE.
What the kit can do for you: The kit is designed to remove STR primers and to reduce primer peaks and to increase specific signal peaks in the CE STR profile. After purifucation of your PCR -STR reaction with this kit, your previous samples with unreadable CE profile can generate meaningful and reliable specific signal peaks with CE analysis.
How the kit can accomplish this: Based on charm biotech developed Solid Surface Reversible Binding (SSRB)
technology, Just-a-Tube system
employs the solid surface coated with proprietary turbo-binders
as selective nucleic acid capturers to efficiently and specificly bind STR DNA fragment from PCR reaction mixture while proteins, dNTP and primers are not bound and can be removed easily with washing buffer. This process is not simply concentrating the sample as other competitiors' kits do, but increases the specific signal in your CE profile.
