- Data from Collaboration Applying forensicgem(TM) Technology to CBI's DNA Forensic Operations Presented at American Academy of Forensic Sciences Annual Meeting -

- Shows ZyGEM's forensicGEM(TM) DNA Extraction Kits Increase DNA Yield, Simplify Workflow and Minimize Potential for Contamination and Error -

SOLANA BEACH, Calif., HAMILTON, New Zealand, and RICHMOND, Va., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- ZyGEM Corp. Ltd. today reported that researchers from Commonwealth Biotechnologies, Inc. (CBI) presented positive data on ZyGEM's forensicGEM(TM) DNA extraction technology at the 2009 American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) Annual Meeting. The data show that forensicGEM(TM) DNA extraction kits provide important benefits, including significantly improved DNA yield from a variety of blood samples and buccal cell suspensions. Compared to other DNA extraction methods, forensicGEM(TM) kits yielded up to six times more DNA per sample than other commonly used methods.

ZyGEM's forensicGEM(TM) family of kits uses a proprietary enzyme to extract DNA from samples using a single closed-tube system. Researchers at CBI's Fairfax Identity Laboratories (FIL) DNA reference operations are collaborating with ZyGEM to further evaluate the kits and to help develop additional products for the forensic DNA market. A leader in the research, development and use of advanced forensic procedures, CBI's FIL analyzes over 50,000 forensic samples each year.

"The results we presented at the AAFS meeting show that the single closed-tube system used by ZyGEM's forensicGEM(TM) kits offers certain improvements and efficiencies compared to other DNA extraction methods," said Charles M. Kelly, Ph.D., Director of FIL and lead author of the AAFS study. "We were able to produce PCR-ready DNA in just over 30 minutes with excellent reproducibility. forensicGEM(TM)'s gentle extraction method does not appear to damage
