Isolation from FFPE Tissue
Agencourt FormaPure DNA isolates nucleic acid from often challenging to work with formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue. Increasingly, FFPE samples are an essential part of many next-generation sequencing (NGS) sample prep workflows, specifically in the field of cancer research. High quality extraction protocols focused on yield and purity are essential to achieving reliable results. FormaPure DNA now provides an automation-ready, SPRI-based extraction reagent kit to support your evolving research needs. Most notably, it provides significant time savings in the form of reduced turnaround times and less than 15 minutes of hands-on time when automated on a Biomek liquid handler.
FormaPure DNA is one of three reagent kits in the FormaPure family, which also includes FormaPure Total for total nucleic acid isolation and FormaPure RNA for RNA isolation. FormaPure reagent kits are a single chemistry system designed and optimized for use in NGS and other downstream applications including qPCR/ddPCR/PCR.
