FFPE DNA Purification Kit
This kit provides a rapid method for the isolation and purification of DNA from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue samples. Using formalin to fix tissues leads to crosslinking of the nucleic acids and proteins, and the process of embedding the tissue samples can also lead to fragmentation of the nucleic acids over time. Norgen’s FFPE DNA Purification Kit provides conditions that allow for the partial reversing of the formalin modifications, resulting in a high quality and yield of nucleic acids. The purified DNA is of high yield and integrity and is free of inhibitors, ready for use in a number of downstream applications including qPCR, mutation screening, microarray analysis, sequencing, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and short-tandem repeat (STR) genotyping. The protocol can be completed in as little as 1 hour.
