Life Technologies Sets New Worldwide Standard For Criminal Forensic Testing With Introduction Of GlobalFilerâ¿¢ Kit

CARLSBAD, Calif., Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: LIFE) the world's leader in human identification solutions, today launched GlobalFiler™  and GlobalFiler™ Express, two new DNA kits that will revolutionize how crime labs perform forensic testing around the world -- making it faster, easier and cheaper to process DNA samples.

By increasing the number of genetic markers by over 30% to 24, GlobalFiler™ delivers the ability to recover significantly more information from forensic samples and increases discrimination power by up to 9 orders of magnitude.  This results in faster and more powerful comparisons of forensic data to resolve crimes.  Combined with five times faster processing efficiency, this powerful advancement will enable forensic scientists to solve and prevent more crime while addressing ever-growing backlogs.  To date, 44 countries have now implemented criminal offender DNA database programs with a combined offender sample pool of 40 million and growing. 

"I've been very impressed with GlobalFiler's performance," said Professor Walther Parson, Ph.D., a leading world expert in forensic DNA testing in Innsbruck, Austria.  "It's extremely high discrimination power will greatly facilitate intelligence databasing and solving of national and cross-border crime."

GlobalFiler™ and GlobalFiler™ Express kits feature a new, proprietary chemistry that enables 48 samples to be processed in under two hours when combined with Life Technologies' forensic testing systems -- five times faster than other solutions currently on the market.  It also facilitates quicker and improved amplification of challenging samples, such as degraded human remains. All combined, the new kits offer forensic science customers an unsurpassed standard in rapid DNA processing from sample-to-result.

For more than 25 years, Life Technologies has led the development and commercialization of the industry's most trusted and reliable forensic solutions for human identification (HID) testing.  It is also the only company in the world that designs and validates its reagents, instruments and data analysis software together as an integrated system for HID testing.
