In a comparison study, the Zymo Research Quick-DNA/RNA™ kit was chosen as the top-performing kit based on DNA/RNA yields and successful STR and mRNA profiling using blood and saliva samples for forensics applications. Additionally, the Quick-DNA/RNA™ kit was determined to be the most cost-effective dual extraction kit as compared to other vendors (1).
