Genetic profiling of sperm from complex biological mixtures such as sexual assault casework samples requires isolation of a pure sperm population and the ability to analyze low abundant samples. Current standard procedure for sperm isolation includes preferential lysis of epithelial contaminants followed by collection of intact sperm by centrifugation.(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish a 15-plex rapid STR multiplex amplification system. METHODS Fourteen auto-chromosome loci and one sex-chromosome were selected to compare the situations of allelic losses and nonspecific amplication under different conditions. FastStart Taq DNA polymerase and DNA standard sample 9947A were used during amplification and optimization(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish optimal amplification conditions with the application of 0.2 mL test tube in single cell separation and inspection. METHODS Oral epithelium cell suspension was prepared. Five or ten cells were collected with 0.2 mL test tube. Then DNA were amplified with Identifiler Plus kit in three different conditions in which the proteinase K(More)
To obtain single-source short tandem repeat (STR) profiles in trace female/male blood mixture samples, we combined florescence in situ hybridization (FISH), laser microdissection, and low volume PCR (LV-PCR) to isolate male/female cells and improve sensitivity. The results showed that isolation of as few as 10 leukocytes was sufficient to yield full STR(More)
Mixed semen stains from multiple contributors are challenging samples in sexual assault casework, and it is crucial to obtain the DNA profiles of different donors to allow the evidence to play an important role in investigations and judicial proceedings. Current standard procedures, including preferential lysis, are incapable of separating single-source(More)
