    02a: Processing FFPE Punches On The Ionic® Purification System
    The Ionic® Purification System has demonstrated advantages over traditional solid phase (column or bead) methods when it comes to extraction of RNA and DNA from Formalin-Fixed Paraffin Embedded (FFPE) tissue. When extracting nucleic acids from FFPE, the Ionic system routinely delivers 2-5 fold increases in yield as well as lower length and GC biases.

    02b: Macrodissection of FFPE Tissue for Nucleic Acid Purification
    Macrodissection of FFPE tissue prior to nucleic acid purification allows the operator to select tissue of interest (typically tumor tissue) and minimize background tissue. This in turn can enrich the extracted nucleic acid for variants of interest. The Ionic Purification System from Purigen Biosystems is an excellent choice for macrodissected tissue. It offers a simple, automated work-flow and typically generates yields that are 2-4x higher than other methods, maximizing the amount of nucleic acids extracted from macrodissected tissue.

    02c: Isotachophoresis Improves Nucleic Acid Extraction and Purification from FFPE Samples
    With a simplified workflow and separation based solely on the electrophoretic mobility of the molecules in a sample, Purigen’s Ionic Purification System offers an alternative for FFPE sample purification for NGS that has less risk of further damage to nucleic acids or bias toward specific fragment length or GC content.

    02d: Increased DNA Yield and Reduced PCR Duplicates Using the Ionic System
    FFPE tissue samples are known to produce low yields of nucleic acid that is often of a lower quality by comparison to nucleic acid from fresh frozen tissue, particularly samples that have been stored for several years or longer. When FFPE tissue is limited, conventional extraction and purification technologies may not produce enough high quality DNA to meet the recommended library preparation input requirements for next-generation sequencing (NGS).
