forensicGEM Sperm DNA extraction kit
forensicGEM Sperm DNA extraction kit


forensicGEM Sperm is a rapid kit for extracting DNA from tough sperm heads. Using temperature controls, this kit requires no reducing agents, such as SDS, mercaptoethanol or DTT, that inhibit qPCR and STR analysis, As a result, DNA yields are maintained, processing time is quick, and opportunities for contamination are minimized making this the perfect approach for differential extractions and y-screening. This kit works with:

  • Sperm cellsforensicGEM Sperm is a rapid kit for extracting DNA from tough sperm heads, and works with samples including sperm cells, semen, semen stains, and vaginal swabs.
  • Semen
  • Semen stains
  • Vaginal swabs

Depending on your laboratory equipment and end-use application, MicroGEM offers two options:


1. Your Lab Equipment

MicroGEM's forensicGEM Sperm Kit produces single-stranded DNA validated for use with STR, PCR, and qPCR. It can extract DNA from liquid samples, dried samples, and stains.

To use your lab’s existing thermocycler or liquid handler, choose the forensicGEM Sperm Kit, optimized with our proprietary enzyme cocktail to rapidly degrade sperm heads and digest the remaining tissue and nucleases.

The kit produces single-stranded DNA suitable for STR, PCR, qPCR.
