WEBINAR: Simultaneous DNA and RNA from FFPE

11 AM – 12 PM EST



This webinar will be hosted by Cambridge Healthtech Institute. Purigen Biosystems has recently launched the revolutionary Ionic Purification System and Kits to recover more RNA and DNA from FFPE samples with a simple, automated approach using isotachophoresis. The new Ionic FFPE Complete Purification Kit combines the benefits of the RNA and DNA extraction kits for FFPE samples into a single workflow with minimal hands-on time.
