ForenSeq mtDNA Control Region Kit

The ForenSeq mtDNA Control Region Kit offers convenient, efficient library prep for interrogating the control region of the mitochondrial genome (mtGenome) with minimal DNA input and optimum sensitivity. Leveraging proven ForenSeq chemistry, the kit produces a concise data set from the hypervariable I and II (HVI and HVII) regions for direct upload to CODIS. Multiplexing capability boosts operational efficiency without increases to costs or time.
