MADISON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Promega Corporation announces the newest addition to the PowerPlex® STR Systems family, the PowerPlex® Y23 System—a rapid human identification Y-Short Tandem Repeat (Y-STR) assay for forensic casework, offender databasing and relationship testing. Thermal cycling time is cut roughly in half, and the system detects substantially more Y-STR loci than current systems. The multiplex system uses rapid cycling to co-amplify 23 Y-STR loci, which provides maximum discrimination. In addition, these 23 loci include many of the Y-STR loci found in key STR databases in the US and Europe.
