Focused Forensic


The MiSeq FGx™ Forensic Genomics System is the first fully validated, massively parallel sequencing (MPS) solution designed for forensic science.

The MiSeq FGx Forensic Genomics System delivers far more insight from forensic DNA than traditional methods with higher resolution than ever before possible. You’ll find the answers you need with a greater degree of certainty with the focused power of Verogen forensic genomics solutions.

Focused power. Deeper insights.

The MiSeq FGx Forensic Genomics System harnesses the power of Illumina’s gold standard sequencing technology. Now forensic examiners can develop more detailed profiles from degraded, mixed and limited biology evidence samples, addressing a wider range of questions in a single interrogation.

The most powerful MPS assay available for all sample types The leading platform in MPS technology Enables seamless, intuitive analysis of relevant SNP and STR data

Dedicated library kits and analytical software take you from DNA to answer with streamlined efficiency.
