SpermTrap

SpermTrap
SpermTrap™ - A matrix based differential extraction system that produces higher male DNA yields than conventional methods, while reducing epithelial cell DNA carryover.

  • Ease of Use: less physical manipulation than conventional methods reduces the risk of sample loss and/or contamination
  • Fully Automatable: simple automation on a Hamilton AutoLys STAR

SpermTrap™ utilizes an advanced matrix material to effectively capture sperm cells, while enabling efficient flow through of digested epithelial cell DNA. The optimized process can effectively recover over 90% of the sperm DNA, which can then be processed for STR analysis to provide high quality male DNA profiles.
