    Abstract

    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.
