ForenSeq Kintelligence Kit
Taking orders now. Available for shipment February 24th.
Target 10,230 SNP markers explicitly curated for forensic kinship use with the ForenSeq Kintelligence Kit. The only sequence-based assay designed for forensic genetic genealogy (FGG), the ForenSeq Kintelligence Kit minimizes privacy concerns by excluding medically informative and minor allele frequency SNPs found in whole-genome sequencing (WGS) or array-based workflows. Robust PCR and primer designs allow for a single SNP multiplex that works across global populations.
The ForenSeq Kintelligence Kit is part of an integrated and supported workflow designed, developed, and validated to deliver high-quality outcomes with low-quality samples. Prepare up to 12 forensic samples per ForenSeq Kintelligence Kit. Sequence up to three samples per MiSeq FGx System run according to predefined run protocols. Analyze data using the preconfigured ForenSeq Kintelligence Analysis Module, which includes recommended thresholds based on extensive in-house testing. Generate a GEDmatch PRO compatible report in less than one hour for investigative lead generation.
Webinar: The ForenSeq Kintelligence Workflow
Minimal Data Privacy Concerns
The kit contains 10,230 forensically curated markers to avoid the use of medically informative or minor allele frequency SNPs.
Maintaining chain-of-custody for evidentiary samples is simplified by enabling forensic genetic genealogy investigative and confirmatory testing and analysis within the forensic laboratory.
Fit for Forensic Purpose
An optimized buffer system tolerates a range of inhibitors commonly found in forensic samples, such as calcium, indigo and humic acid, generating a > 98% call rate.
Assay design provides a high level of process integrity and data quality so you can trust the analysis of even the most challenging forensic samples.
Fully Integrated and Supported
The end-to-end workflow is based on the established ForenSeq process, enabling a diverse range of DNA analysis on a single, proven platform.
The ForenSeq Kintelligence Kit links seamlessly with the Universal Analysis Software Kintelligence Analysis Module and has been built for rapid data assessment and single-click report generation.
