Isolation from FFPE Tissue
Agencourt FormaPure provides a simple, automation-friendly process for extracting RNA from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue samples. By utilizing the Solid Phase Reversible Immobilization (SPRI) paramagnetic bead-based technology, the Agencourt FormaPure system does not require vacuum filtration, centrifugation, or organic solvents such as phenol or xylene. Researchers can go from paraffin digestion to total nucleic acid extraction in about four hours (without setup) for 96 samples in a multi-well format utilizing a Biomek liquid handler. Recoveries are consistently higher than competitive techniques.
