Adv. = stable for many years/reusable/no quantification Disadv. = leapfrogging punches Differential
Adv. = separates female epithelial cells from male sperm Disadv. = does not work with azoospermic semen Too much DNA complicates analysis Too little generates an incomplete profile Degraded DNA prevents amplification from larger loci / Proper collection and preservation of DNA is critical more on this later!
