Still using xylene to manually extract DNA from your FFPE samples?

For decades, formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue samples have been collected and archived for long-term storage. They’re extremely valuable for carrying out research like mutation screening or pathogen detection. In general, deparaffinization of the FFPE tissue sections is achieved by manual xylene pretreatment, which dissolves the paraffin from the tissue, and a series of ethanol washes… Read article →

One spin, one dedicated kit – selection wheels make it possible

It can be a real struggle sometimes to find and select the right isolation kit, whether it is for RNA or genomic DNA (gDNA) purification. Not using the right kit for your experiments has major consequences, however – the impact could be as severe as not being able to publish your results. Or worse, finding that other researchers were able… Read article →

How fast is your amplicon library prep?

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology has fundamentally changed genomic research and now is entering the realm of routine diagnostics. Targeted resequencing, or amplicon sequencing, where selected regions of the genome are enriched prior to library preparation by highly multiplexed PCR, allows researchers to focus sequencing power on specific genes or regions of interest, and is often… Read article →
