    DATE: December 8th, 2016
    TIME:  7:30am PT, 10:30am ET


    Increasingly, Formalin-Fixed, Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) samples are an essential part of many next-generation sequencing (NGS) sample prep workflows, specifically in the field of cancer research. High quality extraction protocols focused on yield and purity are essential to achieving reliable results. FormaPure DNA now provides an automation-ready, SPRI-based extraction reagent kit to support your evolving research needs.
                                                                                     
    Most notably, it provides significant time savings in the form of reduced turnaround times and less than 15 minutes of hands-on time when automated on a Biomek liquid handler. Additional benefits include:

    • Dramatically increase productivity through automation - low to high throughput
    • Proven compatibility with NGS and other downstream applications
    • Consistent extraction performance
    • Enhanced lab safety

    Webinar attendees will learn about:

    • Situations when using FFPE samples for NGS is a better option than fresh-frozen samples
    • The challenges of extracting DNA from FFPE samples manually
    • A demonstrated automated extraction solution that maintains sample quality and yield while significantly reducing turnaround and hands-on times
