CODIS Reporting and Customizable Reporting to meet laboratory LIMS requirements

GeneMarker® HID human identity software can perform STR analysis on over 1,000 lanes of data in seconds, saving significant analysis time and cost. GeneMarker® HID software is compatible with output files major capillary electrophoresis systems (including ABI®PRISM, Applied Biosystems SeqStudio™, Hiachi High-Tech Compact CE Sequencer DS3000, Promega Spectrum Compact CE Systems and Syntol Nanophore® 05 genetic analyzers, Rapid DNA systems (such as RapidHIT™-ID, RapidHIT™ and ANDE®) as well as custom primers or commercially available chemistries including but not limited to those from Promega, QIAGEN and Thermo Fisher. Reporting options include files compatible with PG software such as MaSTR™, STRMix™ and EuroForMix.

The user-friendly interface enables forensic analysts to easily bulk print reports, customize viewing/editing preferences by individual color or all-color-browser, and format reports to fit the work flow and SOP of the individual laboratory.
