RSID Semen

The First Confirmatory Test for Human Seminal Fluid

- Detects Semenogelin NOT PSA

- Other human body fluids do NOT cross-react with this test procedure. (Fluids tested: saliva, blood, urine, vaginal secretions)
- Animal seminal fluid does NOT cross react with test procedure.(Samples tested: bovine, porcine, caprine, and ovine semen)

saliva

 

Identification of human Semen

 

Detect as Little as 1 µL of Human Seminal Fluid
- RSID™-Semen results correlate with Y-STR profile intensity, except from vasectomized or low sperm count males.

Efficient Sample Analysis
- Strip test results are complete in 10 minutes

Dual Monoclonal Antibodies
- Specific for human semenogelin antigen
- No cross reactivity with other body fluids or animal semen (no cross-reaction observed with blood, saliva, urine, vaginal secretion, menstrual blood, or with cow, pig, dog, goat or sheep semen)

Immuno-Chromatographic Lateral Flow Strip Test
- Standard assay format
- Extended shelf life

Complete Set of Protocols Included
- Extraction protocols for forensic samples, including clothing, vaginal swabs, prophylactics, and stained surfaces
- Single tube extraction protocol suitable for STR analysis
- Integration into standard laboratory procedures.
