  • Ionic® FFPE to Pure RNA

    Get Pure RNA and miRNA from FFPE Samples

    Automated purification of RNA, including mRNA and miRNA,
    with minimal hands-on time.

      LEARN MORE
Pure, Native, High Quality DNA and RNA
Biological samples are gently lysed without the use of chaotropic salts. Nucleic acids are not denatured or dehydrated.
Higher Amplifiable Yields
Extract up to 50% more DNA from cultured cells and 3.5x more DNA and 2x more RNA from FFPE samples versus traditional column-based methods.
No Beads, Columns, or Surface-binding
Nucleic acids are purified solely based on electrophoretic mobility. Elimination of binding, washing, and stripping reduces sample loss and contamination.
No Risk Downstream
Purification is not biased toward nucleic acids of a certain length or GC content.
Superior Workflow for FFPE
Purification of nucleic acids from FFPE scrolls or slides requires less than 3 minutes of hands-on time per sample (lysis included). No chemical deparaffinization is required.
Automated Nucleic Acid Purification
Nucleic acids are automatically separated and concentrated from sample lysate on the Purigen system in 60 minutes.

See the Ionic Purification System in Action

The application of ITP to purify and quantify nucleic acids from complex biological samples was pioneered by Purigen co-founder and Stanford University Professor, Juan G. Santiago. The Ionic Purification System is compatible with a range of samples including cells and FFPE to help researchers, scientists, pathologists, and oncologists find the best method for DNA and RNA extraction.
