Forensic MicroSpin

  • Forensic MicroSpin is a valuable device for the extraction of DNA from crime scene samples.
  • Forensic MicroSpin is specifically manufactured to prevent DNA or RNA contamination of the device prior to use.
  • The receiver tube can be capped to protect the sample for storage or freezing

Spec and Instructions:

    • The device has a filter unit, and a 2ml graduated micro centrifuge tube with an attached cap.
    • The filter unit has an integral perforated bottom that filter acts like a strainer and allows fluids to pass but retains small cloth samples in the filter unit.
    • A cloth sample from the crime scene is cut into small pieces and inserted in the filter unit.
    • Add appropriate solvents or buffers to the cloth sample in the filter unit that will permit extraction of DNA.
    • The filter unit is then placed into the 2ml microcentrifuge receiver tube, and the entire assembly is centrifuged in a microcentrifuge as indicated in the DNA extraction protocol being used by the forensic laboratory.
    • Following centrifugation, the filter unit is removed from the filtrate receiver tube, and the cellular debris in the bottom of the tube can be DNA fingerprinted by the forensic technician.
    • Maximum centrifugal force is 20,000 x g. Non-Sterile.
    • Includes Filter Unit & 2.0ml Receiver Tube
