  • 1. Next-generation sequencing for forensic applications Spotlight Next-generation sequencing with the Ion PGM™ System Manfred Kayser is Professor of Forensic Molecular Biology at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. He is well known for his pioneering work on the genetics of human appearance phenotypes with applications to forensics. Here Professor Kayser tells us about the key role the Ion PGM™ Sequencer plays in his research. Read the full interview » Events Get more information from your forensic samples The Ion PGM™ Sequencer extends forensic analysis capabilities by increasing the ability to obtain DNA results from compromised samples that previously would have yielded limited or no genetic data, or when additional investigative leads are needed.

  • 2. Application highlight Product update The future of forensics has arrived: The application of next-generation sequencing By Walther Parson, Ph.D., Sharon Wootton, Ph.D., Lisa Lane Schade, MHR Professor Walther Parson from the Institute of Legal Medicine in Innsbruck, Austria, describes a comparative study on 64 entire mtGenomes using the Ion PGM™ System and STS as reference method. Only a small proportion of forensically relevant variation was found, none of which concerned physical PGM generated data. forensics. Here Professor Kayser tells us about the key role the Ion PGM™ Sequencer plays in his research. “These results are extremely promising and are expected to significantly increase the random match probability for mtDNA analysis when evaluating highly compromised samples”. The #1 selling benchtop sequencing solution just got better • Simplest and fastest* workflow • Most accurate for multiple gene panels • Lowest cost to buy & run Find out more » *Based on head to head comparison of comparable gene panels New to Ion PGM™ Sequencer NGS has the power to transform forensic DNA analysis. Affordable, easy-to-use NGS platforms such as the Ion PGM™ System allow for parallel STR, Y-STR, SNPs and mtDNA analysis and offer advanced tools for complex cases. But how does it work?
