Forensic Scientists at Kansas City Crime Lab Release Validation Report Confirming Zygem's forensicGEM(R) Kit is a Reliable, Rapid Method for Extracting DNA From Saliva
Date:11/17/2009

SOLANA BEACH, Calif. and HAMILTON, New Zealand, Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- ZyGEM Corp. Ltd., a provider of innovative enzyme-based products for DNA extraction and other life sciences applications, today announced the availability of a new application note documenting that its forensicGEM(®) Saliva DNA extraction kit is capable of producing high yields of high-quality, ready-to-analyze DNA from buccal swab samples compatible with high-throughput PCR processing. This capability addresses an important unmet need--it allows quick and reliable forensic DNA extraction that requires minimal handling. The forensicGEM(®) Saliva kit uses a single closed-tube system that reduces extraction time and cost while protecting the sample from contamination. The kit is designed for high-throughput processing either manually or it can be easily adapted for automation with most off-the-shelf systems.

"The data in this forensicGEM(®) Saliva application note generated by experienced crime lab scientists provide important validation of the utility of our forensicGEM(®) kits for forensic applications," said Paul Kinnon, CEO of ZyGEM. "The data show that the kits easily and rapidly extract DNA from buccal swab samples in a single-step process, in contrast to other methods that often require multiple steps that increase the time and cost of extraction while raising the risk of contamination. The speed, ease-of-use and ease-of-automation afforded by our forensicGEM(®) Saliva kit allows for rapid preparation of DNA for forensic profiling without significant investment of time or hardware. We believe these important advantages make the forensicGEM(®) Saliva kit especially valuable for both forensic casework and high volume DNA profiling."

In the application note, forensic scientists at the Crime Laboratory of the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department describe their experience using
