Evaluation of the AmpliType® PM DNA Test System on Forensic Case Samples
Evidence material from sexual assault cases which had been submitted to the laboratory for routine processing were examined to determine the usefulness of the AmpliType® PM PCR Amplification and Typing Kit developed by Roche Molecular Systems for forensic evidence. In all cases in which a conclusive answer was reached for the AmpliType PM system, the results agreed with or surpassed results previously obtained with RFLP testing. The AmpliType PM DNA test system has promise as a quick and easy method for elimination or inclusion of suspects.
