Isolation from FFPE Tissue (RNA)
The Agencourt FormaPure system provides a simple, automation-friendly process for extracting total nucleic acid from Formalin-Fixed, Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) tissue samples. By utilizing the Solid Phase Reversible Immobilization (SPRI) paramagnetic bead-based technology, the Agencourt FormaPure system does not require vacuum filtration, centrifugation, or organic solvents such as phenol or xylene. Researchers can go from paraffin digestion to total nucleic acid extraction in about four hours (without setup) for 96 samples in a multi-well format utilizing the Beckman Coulter Biomek NXP or FXP Span-8 workstation. Recoveries are consistently higher than competitive techniques.
- Consistent, superior yield and purity of RNA or total nucleic acid
- No centrifugation, vacuum filtration, or solvents required
- Supports automated or manual processing
