Gene expression FFPE analysis

Archival Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) samples hold an abundance of invaluable information for human cancer studies. Because these samples generally yield highly degraded DNA and RNA, they perform poorly in most whole-genome genotyping and expression studies. This issue has been recently solved for genotyping and expression studies that require the use of microarrays. We have tested these new products and we are now proud and confident to offer genotyping and expression workflows adapted for FFPE samples.

Affymetrix microarray

SensationPlus™ FFPE IVT Reagent Kit) and (SensationPlus™ FFPE WT Reagent Kit) provide the latest and most robust RNA amplification and labeling solution for whole-genome expression profiling from FFPE samples. Using proprietary technology, this kit overcomes the challenges associated with FFPE samples ? such as low sample input and poor sample quality ? efficiently generating sufficient target in one round of whole-transcriptome amplification for complete gene expression profiling with unparalleled sensitivity, reproducibility, and performance, enabling you to unlock the full potential inside your FFPE samples.
