Target the core autosomal and Y-STRs with the ForenSeq MainstAY Kit, the most accessible way to generate highly discriminating data for mainstream casework and forensic genetic genealogy confirmatory testing. By focusing on established STRs used in routine human identification applications, MainstAY eases the transition to next-generation sequencing by maintaining compatibility with global databases. The familiar and proven ForenSeq workflow generates more comprehensive DNA profiles for up to 96 evidence samples with less than 2 hours of hands-on time.
The ForenSeq MainstAY Kit is part of an integrated workflow that sequences libraries on the MiSeq FGx Sequencing System and analyzes data in Universal Analysis Software (UAS). The kit is designed, developed, and manufactured as a high-performance end-to-end solution for forensic samples. Technical support is included for the entire portfolio, and quality-controlled manufacturing ensures reproducibility with the convenience of an all-in-one library prep kit.
