FFPE tissue, which often has a low abundance of nucleic acid, represents a bottleneck in sample preparation workflows. Researchers and clinicians working with these FFPE samples often resort to labor-intensive methods in order to isolate sufficient material for downstream analyses. However, such methods are not always successful in improving yields and can introduce bias which further impacts the quality of downstream analysis.
To help scientists overcome the sample prep bottleneck commonly associated with FFPE samples, the Ionic® Purification System introduces a simple, automated approach to nucleic acid purification using isotachophoresis. Isotachophoresis allows for the separation and concentration of nucleic acid freely in solution without binding to, or stripping from, a physical surface. This results in higher yields of pure nucleic acid that is less fragmented and free from bead or wash buffer contamination.
With the new Ionic FFPE to Pure RNA Kit, the Ionic system provides automated purification of RNA, including mRNA and miRNA, from FFPE tissue samples. Join us for a special webinar hosted by Cambridge Healthcare Institute and presented by Lewis Marshall, Director of Microfluidics at Purigen, featuring the new Ionic FFPE to Pure RNA Kit.
