Optimizing FFPE Extraction for Methylation Array and Sequencing Assays

Analysis of the methylation state of cancer samples is a powerful tool for research and clinical applications. Ensuring high-quality high-yield DNA extraction from minimal FFPE samples is essential to optimize clinical testing. Here we describe best practices for extraction of DNA from FFPE to support downstream applications including methylation arrays and sequencing. A case study comparing extraction methods for methylation array profiling will be presented.
