The BiOstic® FFPE Tissue DNA Isolation Kit is designed to extract and purify genomic DNA from tissues fixed with formalin and embedded in paraffin.
Using a novel method, the BiOstic® FFPE Tissue DNA Isolation Kit directly melts wax away from tissue without the use of solvents such as xylene to deparaffinize the tissue. Higher DNA yield is achieved as a result of this gentle method. Also, the recovered DNA is more pure and free from contaminants that can have an adverse affect on detection sensitivity and amplification efficiency. Genomic DNA extracted with the BiOstic® FFPE Tissue DNA Isolation Kit can be used in real-time PCR, SNP genotyping and other genetic analysis methods.
May be used in combination with the BiOstic® Paraffin Removal Reagent. Protocol included in the BiOstic® FFPE Tissue DNA Isolation Kit manual.
The BiOstic® FFPE Tissue DNA Isolation Kit is sold for research purposes only.
