QIAGEN Investigator human identity testing products

Monday, 08 February, 2016 | Supplied by: QIAGEN Pty Ltd



QIAGEN’s Investigator kits, developed for forensic, human identity and paternity testing, rapidly generate DNA profiles from blood, buccal swabs and forensic stains. The company’s sample and assay technology kits for human identity testing, and the associated manufacturing facilities, now meet the requirements of the ISO 18385:2016 standard.

The international standard specifies requirements for the manufacture of products used in the collection, storage and analysis of human DNA during forensic testing. These requirements seek to improve the quality of forensic testing around the world by minimising the risk of human DNA contamination during the manufacturing process. Manufacturers that comply with the requirements can label their products ‘Forensic DNA Grade’.

Following the publication of the standard, QIAGEN announced the availability of ISO 18385:2016 Forensic DNA Grade products covering the entire workflow of sample and assays technologies, and both manual and automated methods. All of the associated manufacturing sites are operating under the standard.

The company’s Investigator STR assay kits incorporate the Investigator Quality Sensor to evaluate the quality of DNA in each sample, a QIAGEN technology that enables labs to decide quickly which evidence may provide valuable results.
