Rapid DNA Analysis

Life Sciences from GE Healthcare offers rapid DNA technology, reagents, and kits for performing DNA profiling from single-source, known reference samples. DNAscan Rapid DNA Analysis System, from GE and NetBio, is a 4-color tabletop system that produces DNA profiles in less than 90 minutes. DNAscan uses PowerPlex™ 16 chemistry and integrates DNA purification, amplification, separation/detection, and allele calling by an Expert System. DNAscan 6C Rapid DNA Analysis System is a 6-color version of DNAscan that uses Flexplex chemistry, a 27-locus assay compatible with DNA databases around the world. Like the original DNAscan system, DNAscan 6C generates DNA profiles in less than 90 minutes. Both systems feature a single-use, self-contained consumable called NetBio BioChipSet Cassette, which contains all the reagents and materials needed to perform each reaction.

DNA profiling of arrestee/offender reference samples allows searching and comparison of these known samples to DNA databases that contain forensic samples, helping law enforcement to solve crimes, convict offenders, and exonerate the innocent. Traditional DNA profiling processes require several pieces of laboratory equipment that need specialized laboratory space, highly trained personnel, and can take hours, weeks, or months to test samples. Rapid DNA technology reduces time-to-results and is designed for both technical and nontechnical personnel.

To aid with your agency’s transition to rapid DNA technology, we offer training for DNAscan Rapid DNA Analysis System.
