Understanding what factors contribute to variations in quantity of DNA purified from FFPE materials

QIAGEN recently presented a webinar exploring what factors contribute to variations in quantity of DNA purified from FFPE material. As noted in “Top 5 considerations for preparing and archiving FFPE samples,” FFPE is a standard method for long-term preservation of DNA in tissue biopsies. It’s critical to understand how to overcome the challenges that this sample type presents in order… Read article →

How pure is pure enough for DNA in NGS?

DNA purification is a critical step for obtaining accurate NGS data, because the quality of your starting material determines the reliability of next-generation sequencing results and data analysis. Even the best and most robust NGS technologies can only provide reliable results if the template nucleic acid is of adequate quality and purity. DNA purity is especially important at target… Read article →

Webinar download: Automate and standardize processes for cell-free DNA in liquid biopsy

Circulating, cell-free DNA (cfDNA), which can originate from malignant tumors, the developing fetus or inflammatory tissues, is present among the cell-free nucleic acids in plasma, serum and other body fluids. Recently, cfDNA has become a powerful tool in non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT), as well as in liquid biopsy for cancer. Analysis of cfDNA allows for… Read article →
