    WEBINAR: 01a - Maximizing DNA Yields from Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells for Archiving and NGS Analysis
    Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMCs) are a crucial sample type for a broad range of research applications including profiling immune cells and serving as “normal” controls for studies of FFPE tumor tissue for oncology studies. Maximizing the DNA yield from PBMCs enables archiving and increases the number of downstream assays that can be performed. The Ionic Purification System from Purigen Biosystems leverages isotachophoresis to maximize the yield of DNA from PBMCs. During the webinar data will be presented showing significantly improved yields of DNA extracted from PBMCs ranging in cell count from 10 cells to 5 million cells. Learning Objectives: • Learn how DNA yield and quality impact downstream genomic analysis • Understand how Isotachophoresis (ITP) works and enables superior nucleic acid extraction vs legacy technologies (columns, beads, precipitation, etc.) • Evaluate data showing superior yields from ITP-based extraction • Explore options for trying out ITP in your lab

    WEBINAR: 01a - Simultaneous Extraction of DNA and RNA from FFPE Samples with 75% Less Hands-on Time
    The new Ionic® FFPE Complete Purification Kit from Purigen Biosystems provides simultaneous purification of DNA and RNA, including miRNA, from FFPE tissues. While most technologies use a serial approach to separately isolate DNA and RNA, this new kit enables a single, automated workflow using the Ionic® Purification System that requires 75% less hands on time.

    WEBINAR: 01a - Unlock the Value in Your FFPE Samples - More Nucleic Acid with Less Hands-on Time Using Isotachophoresis
    FFPE tissue samples with a low abundance of nucleic acid continue to present a challenge for cancer genomics. Such samples frequently fail to produce sufficient DNA or RNA for downstream analyses, which can impact patient care or reduce the statistical power of a study. In this workshop, we will review data that demonstrates the ability of the Ionic® Purification System to recover sufficient yields of high-quality DNA, RNA, or miRNA from FFPE tissue samples that prove challenging for conventional methods.
