Forensic DNA Typing by Capillary Electrophoresis: Using the ABI Prism 310 and 3100 Genetic Analyzers for STR Analysis
John Butler, Eric Buel, Federica Crivellente, B R. McCord
DNA typing with short tandem repeat (STR) markers is now widely used for a variety of applications including human identification. Capillary electrophoresis (CE) instruments, such as the ABI Prism 310 and ABI 3100 Genetic Analyzers, are the method of choice for many laboratories performing STR analysis. This minireview discusses issues surrounding sample preparation, injection, separation, detection, and interpretation of STR results using CE systems. Requirements for accurate typing of STR alleles are considered in the context of what future analysis platforms will need to increase sample throughput and ease of use.
