RH-with-Helix-on-GUIThe RapidHIT System is the first fully automated sample-to-profile system for STR-based human identification. Samples can be processed using our GlobalFiler® Express cartridges and uploaded to the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS).

RapidHIT human identification system produces standardized DNA profiles from buccal swabs and other crime scene samples in ~90 minutes. The RapidHIT System uses gold standard sample extraction, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and Capillary Electrophoresis (CE) technologies. Requiring only three minutes of hands-on time to generate one through seven DNA profiles, the easy to use system fits into any forensic workflow. The output from the system is compatible with local, state and national human identification databases.

  • Only Rapid DNA analysis system with NDIS approved chemistry
  • >93% full concordant profiles for 13 CODIS loci1
  • 100% concordance with NIST SRM 2391c standard1
  • Easy to use interface and software analysis
  • Room temperature storage of sample cartridges
  • Process any swab type or crime scene samples directly in the cartridge
  • Requires on ~3 minutes of hands-on time, less than 2 hours time to results

Effective December 1, 2014, the FBI has updated current DNA databasing standards for laboratories performing Rapid DNA analysis and Modified Rapid DNA Analysis Using a Rapid DNA Instrument.

The Addendum describes requirements that accredited labs must achieve in order for their results to be considered for inclusion in the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS).  The FBI has provided Auditing documents and Lab Checklists to ensure that these labs comply with the new Quality Assurance Standards.

Rapid DNA analysis generates DNA profiles in less than two hours.   This technology can be used by local and regional law enforcement, enabling them to eliminate irrelevant leads quickly – and bring the correct suspects to justice, before they can re-offend.  Delivering faster DNA profiles can aid in the reduction of violent crime by allowing law enforcement to focus their efforts on the right suspects more quickly.

IntegenX is the market leader in Rapid Human DNA identification with the RapidHIT System.
